Hunters of Lake Tutchewop

On the first visit to Lake Tutchewop on my two day trip into Northern Victoria, we failed to find the Orange Chats but we did find quite a few shore birds along the drying beach and mudflats. Watching them with keen eyes from the nearest higher vantage points were a pair of Brown Falcons.

  1. Great find Malt. Brown Falcon is one of the prettiest raptors to capture flying, I love seeing their plumage patterns in full sunlight. I wonder if they are a breeding pair? We have an almost birdless summer due to heat and dry. I think they knew to find better places to nest and keep cool.
