But Daffy Duck does look like a Freckled Duck. This observation usefully suggested at some prior event, by Jenny Bounds.
I don't know what these messages are about. That someone has seen a Brown Falcon or a Black Falcon does not impact on the possibility that someone else has seen a Black Falcon or a Brown Falcon. Unless we know that it was the same bird. Once you are actually looking at a Black Falcon, if well enough observed, they are quite different and it take quite a lot of wishful thinking to interpret one as the other,   
Similarly, and going back two weeks, having seen a flock of six Pied Imperial Pigeons two days ago (in Cairns, N Qld), I reckon you wouldn't confuse them for Feral Pigeons (Rock Doves). The size is quite different and they are neater than the latter and fly rather differently.
