Hi all, 

Nothing too unusual to have a pair of Peregrines here in Bundaberg SEQld 
regularly using the middle of town. Recently in the early morning the female 
was seen with a male Red-backed Button-Quail in her talons. This was a bit of a 
surprise as it's not a bird which is recorded here often. Hanzab doesn't 
mention it as having been recorded as a prey item although Painted Button-Quail 
is in there amongst all the other species. I've asked Stephen Debus and Greg 
Czechura who are not aware of it having been recorded. The Queensland Museum 
recommended asking Birding-Aus!

Anyone out there have a similar record? I have a poor but identifiable picture 
of it as checked the id with Stephen.
