Or perhaps one of his relatives?
Being at work early this morning I was distracted by a shape zooming diagonally across my window.  It turned out to be a peregrine - thought to be one of the pair nesting on the Brooklyn bridge.  Wherever it came from it was hungry as it zapped what I think was a  house sparrow and went and sat on top of the Uganda Mission building for a passerine breakfast.  See piccie: is this eligible for the photo gallery since peregrines are a Canberra bird.
NB: the roof top in question is about 30 metres away, and the shot was right into the morning sun, which IMHO justifies the fuzzy image.
