Why would ya pay $1600 to see a Princess Parrot when in a couple a month's
they could be as common as Grey Falcons!!

Steve Potter (Adelaide) and I had a Grey Falcon this morning shortly after
first light only 9kms north of Alice Springs on the Stuart Highway.
We parked immediately north of the rail overpass and a single bird flew over
us from the west giving clear views of all diagnostic features. It looped
around to the north and we had another good view about 15 minutes later.
About an hour later, we had a third view at a greater distance of what was
probably the same bird.
This is an area criss-crossed by many small watercourses still holding water
with many small dams and lots of small to medium eucalypts.
