Wed 2 May Black Falcon Pinnaroo, nr. Golden Grain Hotel
A pair of Black Falcons were harassing galahs, starlings, feral pigeons and red-rumped parrots that had been feeding on the ground near some grain storage areas. At one stage one Black Falcon was perched on the TV antennae of the hotel and the other perched on the top of a radiata pine adjacent to the hotel. In time they moved on, seemingly without actually catching any bird.
