Hello All,
The ones in my garden are all left footed.
You clever people may already know this but I found out recently that in birds it is the females which have the 'Y' chromosome.
No sign of the Papuan Harrier but the unusual juvenile spotted from last summer's brood at Cleminsons Crk, Malanda is moulting into adult plumage.
