Saw a Pacific Baza today cruising at about 50m above tree tops and from that
height and about 100m away it spotted a favourite meal- the green phasmid.
It folded its wings in a graceful imitation of a Peregrine, swooped in and
plucked its prey from the foliage. Then consumed it amid the raucous
attention of Noisy Miners and Magpies.

Happy birding
