I have observed Black Falcons several times since we moved to the Bellarine 
Peninsula in 2017.  They are usually flying overhead, singly or in pairs, and 
are often calling.  Today’s sighting was a lot closer!

I was driving about 250m from home when my wife and I saw a Black Falcon 
perched by the side of the road.  I slowed down and the Falcon flew off as we 
passed, with a Galah in its talons.

I have observed perched Black Falcons from a distance with binoculars before 
but it was great to get a close-up view, even if it was quite fleeting.
