I was putting tree guards on new plantings in our front paddock this morning 
when I heard raptors calling overhead.  I looked up and saw three Brown Falcons 
and a Black Falcon overhead.  As I was watching them, a Wedge-tailed Eagle 
soared over at a higher altitude.  The Brown Falcons were interacting with each 
other, the Black Falcon and the Eagle were doing their own thing.

We put in our new plants last Thursday and, at one stage, there were five Black 
Kites looking for easy pickings where we were working.  A Brown Goshawk flashed 
by shortly after.

All of the raptors mentioned above are regular visitors but it is unusual to 
see three species at once.  It is also unusual that our resident Whistling 
Kites were nowhere to be seen.
