Kites and falcons

A few images from a short journey earlier this week across the plains.

The Black-shouldered Kite was one of a pair hunting mice from an elevated perch atop a pine tree.

The Brown Falcon was likely in search of the same quarry – a hay shed its chosen lookout.

The Nankeen Kestrel, a splendid female captured in the golden hour, is another renowned mouse hunter.
