Falcon in the house

Postby Tim Barnard » Sun Mar 15, 2020 6:32 pm

Hi

Here's a first, we had a female Falcon just fly into our house through the open doors and back out into the garden... they are quite big in closed panicky spaces. Loretta is still catching her breath ...

I'll add it to my birds seen in the living room list.

Back to cooking curry ... have a great evening everyone

Cheers

Tim

Ha - I'd be a bit unnerved as well...
Must have been a very tasty and desirable curry....
Cheers

Cheers Jim. I suspect it was more interested in the finches and sparrows I'd just fed than the veggie curry. :-)

Had a quite a number of close encounters with our Falcon over the last month or so. Almost collided with it last night as we both turned the corner of the house at the same time.

Back to urban Falcon's, my daughter saw one on Grafton Road, Roseneath, Wellington yesterday. It was sitting on the ridge of a house.
