Weekend raptors

Continuing the weekend raptor theme – here is a selection of other shots from yesterday’s outing.

This Brown Falcon was surprisingly unperturbed by my arrival – shooting from the car helped it remain comfortable.

Take-off!

This Black Kite was seen in the company of a Little Eagle near Joyce’s Creek. Fresh blood on the beak and claws indicate a recent kill, most likely a rabbit.

To finish off – here are some flight shots of the female Nankeen Kestrel that featured yesterday.
