Hi All,

      Just on dusk yesterday, about 2 ½ k?s northwest  of Heathcote (Vic) a
Peregrine Falcon literally dived in front of the car being driven by Ian

There was no avoiding hitting the bird as it went headfirst into the grille
and became wedge there.  After extracting the bird from the car, Ian noticed
it had bands on both  legs.

I?m hoping that someone will know who, and for what reason, a Peregrine
Falcon would be banded.  Any subscribers who might be able to help with
further information or interested in obtaining the numbers and colour of
bands please contact me.

Unfortunately, I didn?t see any of this as Ian was on his way to the airport
to pick me up.

I?ve had a Peregrine hassling the Corellas around home in Axedale over the
last 2 weeks. I?m hoping it?s not the same bird.  The collision was
approximately 20k?s

?as the crow flies?  from home
