About a month ago a Peregrine was picked up in the pine tree reserve at the back of Giralang it was taken to Higher Ground Raptor rehab aviary in Kangaroo Valley .


It has recovered well and will be released back to Giralang in a few days .I wonder if they are related ?

This morning I woke to find a Peregrine Falcon in the process of killing and then eating a White Ibis on my driveway. I'm surprised, but perhaps I shouldn't be, that such a large bird would be taken by a Peregrine.

I presume that the Peregrine most likely took the Ibis in the air, but by the time I saw them, they were on the ground.
