Peregrines back, no doubt about that

reasently I briefly saw a falcon flying threw the trees carrying what seemed to be a duck. Flying up out of the trees it’s called. I thorght “that must have been a peregrine”. Few weeks later I when to look at the birds out in the paddock, I found the feathers of why was a wood duck.

also have some primary and secondary feathers, but the image was to large to upload.

I saw them againe. They were in the tree, the ons the chickens like to perch in. I was whacking a butcherbird chase around the sparrows, when I heard a falcon call. One peregrine flew out of the tree, as I always thought there was only one, I thought that was it. But no, there was two. The butcherbird sat its self at the front of the tree, as the falcon chase around the sparrows. The falcon, a large female flew out of the tree holding a sparrow wile also being attacked by a sparrow, which was being chased buy the butcherbird that was being attacked by a wag-tail family.

so, I now know that there are two peregrines, a pier that is. Once I even saw 3 juvenile peregrines. but at that time, I only thought there was one male peregrine. 

Oh, and the chickens were not amused with the compy.
