Nesting Falcon

Larry Nordell forwarded this, from an email he received.

This Falcon looks like it has spent some time in Upstate NY or the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
I know that my classmates would recognize a Falcon because they are older and mature. I'm not sure I can say that about their offspring.
It is a beautiful sight to see one nesting high up in a majestic Eucalyptus tree!
I've seen many remarkable nature photographs over the years but this photo of a nesting Falcon in an old tree is perhaps the most remarkable nature shot that I've ever seen.
Please send this to your older friends, since the younger ones probably have never seen a falcon, and wouldn't recognize it.

Autoliterate would suggest that given 1)a eucalyptus tree   2) the fact that theFord Falcon was a very popular car down under and 3) lefthand drive, that is image is from the land of Oz.
