Rare view of a nesting falcon

#1 Post by JimT » Fri May 03, 2019 11:40 am

It is a beautiful sight to see one nesting high up in a majestic Eucalyptus tree!

I've seen many remarkable nature photographs over the years but this photo of a nesting falcon in an old tree is perhaps the most remarkable nature shot that I've ever seen.

Please send this to your older friends, since the younger ones probably have never seen a falcon, and wouldn't recognize it. But the older person will probably recognize it immediately.

Somebody needs to put a web-cam up there, so we can watch to see if any baby 'Falcon' hatch... :lol:

I always wanted one of those little Falcons with the small (260?) V-8. Basically, a four door Mustang. 8)

Somewhere I have a pic of a quad on the roof of a 70-80s vintage green woodie station wagon. Not an accidental thing mind you it was tied down and in the parking lot of Cabelas in Nebraska.
