There are also several Aust. Hobbies inhabiting the area around Alma Road, St Kilda (where I work). I often see them flying low and fast over rooftops, presumably hunting for unsuspecting pigeons (which are in plague proportions around here!),

Where I live (Chadstone) and work (Dandenong-Berwick) area, i definately think hobbies are
increasing. I will see them more days than not and sometimes several birds in various places. I
do drive around a fair bit for work which might help with the extra spotting.

Aust. Hobbies are quite often seen near the corner of Nicholson St  and
Princes St (which turns into Heidelberg Rd further out). I have always
assumed that they use the Exhibition Gardens as base, but there are
quite a few surviving tall trees in Brunswick and Carlton.   I saw one
overhead from a house in Easey St close to Hoddle St only three weeks ago.
