You've never been really swooped till you've been swooped (or technically "stooped") by a Peregrine Falcon, complete with the shrill Kee - Kee - Kee call. This was in late 1960s.
As with Philip's case, it was defending its nest.
But unlike most birds, its approach was vertical. Straight down through the crown of the big old gum tree on the escarpment at Lake George. But it started at about 100 metres altitude to give it some serious momentum.

Just to bring back happy memories for all swooped by brown goshawks, here's another two images from the other week's merry time at Mulligans! (With gratis appearance by noisy friarbird.)
