    My favourite bird

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Falcon is my favourite as well @JoshC , I have had several neat encounters over the years with these top winged predators. One just a couple of days ago, I have a group of swallows that forever fly into my boatshed when the door is lifted, I swear n curse them openly when there's no other ears listening. I had just chased one out with my landing net turned to push the door button n a funny swoosh/twack noise made me turn back to see a falcon pulling up with a swallow safe in its talons. Cool. I feel fortunate to have witnessed these birds hunting.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I had been told years ago about falcons shepparding woodpigeons away from the bush till they were exhausted and easy to catch. Watched it with my own eyes a few years ago.

    @Rushy, if you think Waikato can fix jaundice, you need some theatre makeup

    Saw some of those in the estuary next to Auckland Airport a couple of years ago.
