While I cannot top Carol's 150 Regents, I thought I might share an experience.

One sunny winter morning a few years ago I was eating breakfast outside and
picked up my cereal bowl to watch the King Parrots and others bathing in the
eucalypt leaves. As I was looking away they suddenly went silent. Looking
over my shoulder I saw a huge falcon swooping over the house! Yes it was a
female Peregrine and at four to five metres she did look huge. She made
another circuit, thus I was able to make an identification and all the while
the parrots were silent.
