The Peregrine Falcon is an extraordinary bird and every encounter is memorable. The male falcon, also known as a tiercel, is much smaller than the female. As a consequence the males tend to take smaller prey, leaving larger items for the more robust and powerful female. In our area Galahs are a favourite target of Peregrines, probably too large for the tiercel – I like to imagine starlings, mynahs and sparrows are on the menu for the lesser half!
