Funny,  I wrote almost exactly the same to Carol as Allan did, before reading his reply.

Subject: [BIRDING-AUS] A Pair of Wings!

Hi Birders,
Carol Proberts when describing just a pair of wings of an Owlet-Nightjar that were found in the Blue Mountainds area, and asked the question, what predator would leave behind just a pair of wings?
The answer is "Many I suppose", but the main culprit in my experience is the Peregrine Falcon. They particularly leave pairs of wings behind after consuming White-faced Storm-Petrels, Wedge-tailed Shearwaters, Gould's Petrels, Feral Pigeons, even Bar-tailed Godwits (I found a pair of wings below an eyrie at Mow Rock, Binnaway Central NSW), Red-rumped Parrots and Silver Gulls etc
