      KĀREAREA ARE NEW ZEALAND’S FASTEST FLYING BIRD

      The New Zealand falcon is faster than a V8 supercar and perfectly adapted to take fast corners. Flying at speeds of up to 230 kilometres an hour, they are perfectly adapted to swoop and dart through the forest in pursuit of live prey. These aerial acrobats are highly territorial and a pair recently made the news for launching “fists of fury” in Wellington to protect their nests.

        The PDT is a very sad person. Bah, humbug.

        I see hawks every day; if one flies over the house, its shadow is really big. They are also seen by the roadsides. When one sees prey and drops, it’s easy to miss seeing it go; they just plummet like stones, The unlucky mouse or whatever it is would be very lucky to escape.

        The sight of one dropping is astonishing; they really seem to just vanish.

        I have taken a waxeye nest in, as it was obvious that it was no longer in use. The weaving is wonderful, the ‘threads’ are very fine and include some human hair, or what looks like it, I could make nothing so delicate.

          The PDT has struck again,
          The PDT is quite a pain
          They cannot bear to see our pleasure
          In Mother Nature and her treasure.

          We look out and see sweet birds,
          The PDT looks out-sees turds.

          Downtick away, you poor sad being,
          It will not spoil our joy in seeing.

    This lady left America because she couldn’t stomach the racism. She went to France, in someways now ironic. She’s renowned for shooting a couple of people during violent rages
    (my kind of gal), and she produced some fine music along the way. She had the final dignity of dying in a beautiful area of France.

      Why do you admire someone who was so dangerous that annoying her was likely to result in her shooting you because she had so little self-control ? Or so little respect for human life ?

            Of course I do. His wife and unborn son were hideously murdered. His beautiful wife and the baby who would have been born a few weeks later were slaughtered by sadists.His wife had words painted in blood on her dead body. It was one of the most horrible events in US history-people slaughtered at random and butchered in a way that would have ensured that their deaths were agonising and terrifying. Then the bodies were treated with contempt.

            Had he been someone who shot people in fits of temper, I wouldn’t sympathise with him at all.

              Don’t try to put words in people’s mouths-it’s an annoying habit of yours.. I never said that it was ‘very good’. But as the girl-now a grandmother-didn’t and doesn’t see herself as a victim, it’s time that the issue was dropped. It was 40 years ago. Move on from it. Old news.

            May I politely suggest, Corky & Blazer, that you re-read the rules of this thread up above. MOD
