Black Falcon - thanks to the late Michael Hirst??

A Black Falcon seen today keeping the local feral pigeons honest by Olive Booth and me near the Drayton Cemetery, along Anzac Ave.

We had just attended the late Michael Hirst's funeral. Michael (25 July 1922-29 May 2010), a long-time and active TBO member and past committee member, would have been pleased. Maybe even had a hand in it :D.

Michael loved his birds with a passion, contributed greatly to our local knowledge with articles and monthly records, and will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
