Nikolas Haass kindly reminded me that the ‘morphs’ of the Brown Falcon are 
actually ’phases’, that is colour variants that change over time.  The rufous 
‘morph’ is actually an adult male plumage.  It is interesting that I don’t 
recall ever seeing an adult male Brown Falcon in the Clarence Valley before.  
The bird that we saw yesterday isn’t necessarily an inland bird but I do 
suspect that Brown Falcons visit the north coast from inland areas, or from 
southern latitudes, during the winter months as numbers are greater then.   
Brown Falcons are uncommon locally during the breeding season.
