- Party Size:
- Birdline Australia
- Spotted Harrier, Square-tailed Kite, Whistling Kite, White-bellied Sea-Eagle, Brown Falcon. Raptors galore! This morning I was blessed with many raptors out along Castlereagh Rd. I was able to sneak upon a beautiful Spotted Harrier perched on a roadside fence. Then I saw three (3) Whistling Kites hunt over cut grass paddocks (unusual numbers), the local female Brown Falcon, a Square-tailed Kite hunting along the trees lining Castlereagh Road, a White-bellied Sea-Eagle, five (5) Black-shouldered Kites (some hovering) and a Nankeen Kestrel. All in all a beautiful bunch of sightings a few minutes from home and in rather dreary weather. Site:Castlereagh near Penrith. Observer:Ákos Lumnitzer
Are you submitting a complete checklist of the birds you were able to identify?
