Had a call on Friday from folks staying in high-rise units in Mooloolaba on
the Sunshine Coast, SEQ, wanting identification of 5 birds they were seeing
on nearby buildings.   From their descriptions, I was fairly sure they were
Peregrines, and that is exactly what they proved to be.   I had to go down
late afternoon after work, so did not see all birds.   One juvenile was
perched, and I found the female in flight later, judging by size, but by the
descriptions given to me, it is a family of female, male and 3 juveniles.


There are seafront cliffs nearby, and I think that was probably where they
nested - or should that be eyried?   What great parenting to raise 3 young
to such a stage.


For locals, there is good viewing from the northern corner of First Avenue
which looks at the rear of the buildings.
