In reply to Evan's message below:
 - there are plenty of Peregrine Falcons in city centres - I saw one from my
office window cruising south down Pitt St, Sydney on Tuesday this week and
there's quite a famous pair in Brisbane.  Lots of pigeons and/or seagulls
make for a ready supply of prey for larger raptors.
- there were 2 Powrful Owls in Sydney's botanic gardens in 1999/2000 (eating
rats and fruit bats)
- not sure that a Kestrel could tackle a pigeon, although there's a
plentiful supply of mice on the CityRail network (based on the population
running around on the tracks at Town Hall station
