The following is a digest of Sightings Reported on Birdpedia for the period 
Monday, April 18, 2016 to Sunday, April 24, 2016:

Area: SA

Date: Tuesday, April 19, 2016

Location: Corner Westminster St & first Ave, St Peters

Australian Hobby (Falco longipennis) (1) While walking home, a block from very 
busy Payneham Road in the rush hour, a bird carrying another in its claws flew 
close to the ground and dropped its victim on the footpath. The victim was a 
very young fluffy wattlebird without enough markings to show whether it was a 
little wattlebird or a red wattlebird. It had a puncture wound in the side of 
its head. I rolled it over but it was almost dead. Looking up, there was a 
hobby on the powerlines 5 metres above me, looking intently at me. I walked on 
while the hobby continued looking at me. Later in the evening the victim had 
vanished, presumably as dinner.

White-winged Fairy-wren (Malurus leucopterus) (1) From the carpark, walk to the 
pylon at the end of the road between the left hand pond and the riding school. 
The wrens were in some bushes about 10 o'clock to the pylon. They were also 
there last Saturday. Photos attached.
