Back at Werribee for this week's WBW.
The Brown Falcon (Falco berigora) is a common and widespread Australian bird of prey, occurring over all of the continent. It is a little larger than a Peregrine Falcon, but does not share its worldwide distribution.
These pictures are of the same bird sitting on two different locations on a fence at the Western Treatment Plant. I waited for the bird to hunt and return to its post, but it did not oblige - although it did rid itself of its last meal!
These picture show the 'double teardrop' that encloses a pale cheek patch, which is diagnostic of this bird.
