Date: Monday, May 23, 2011

Location: North Adelaide

Australian Hobby (Falco longipennis) (1) The oval immediately east of the 
Adelaide Acquatic Centre. I noticed a bird fly across the oval into the trees 
that border Fitzroy Tce. It was holding something in its talons. When I 
followed it I found a Hobby sitting on a dead tree with what looked like a 
(very dead) Noisy Miner. I saw a Hobby in the same area a couple of weeks ago.
