White-Bellied Sea-Eagles are regularly seen on Sydney harbour and breed
there but judging by reports of deaths, Sydney Harbour may be a sink for
WBSEs - deaths exceed births with numbers sustained only by immigration.

CBDs have their hazards for Peregrine's too - I've long wondered if CBDs
are a sink or source of Peregrines.
