Thanks Tony. Great pics. Annie and I saw one of the youngsters on a ledge eating the galah, which your pics indicate was carried in by one of the adults. We also saw male and female adults flying together, allowing great comparison of the difference in size. One of the youngsters flew some distance along the river to sit in a dead tree - flying ability is great, landing ability needs some work! Hope we see you at some COG outings in the future.

I would like to acknowledge Shorty and John Bundock's assistance in providing details that allowed me to see and experience them. Thanks.

Once again this pair of good peregrine parents have raised three new peregrines to fledging stage at Red Rocks Gorge. I have watched them for three of the past four years, and they have successfully raised three each time, which is an excellent success rate.


A nice group of native orchids - Southern Hooked Rustyhoods (Oligochaetochilus hamatus- around the rocks we use as a vantage point to watch the birds - Red Rocks is one of the sites mentioned in the ACT orchid book as a site for these.
