A falcon nesting in a tree

Friends,

I’ve received many remarkable nature photographs over the years but this photo of a nesting Falcon is perhaps the most remarkable Nature shot that I’ve ever seen. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Nature is truly breath-taking!

Certainly not what I was expecting. Somebody must have forgotten where he parked it 50 years ago.

It must be just resting, it doesn't look in any shape to breed!

I'm guessing it's the rare koala falcon.

Koala Falcon?

More likely kookaburra than koala...later generations mutated and developed different plumage than their US cousins...

Used to pass this on my trips past Clinton WI. It's been there for a few decades now. He even has a web site: truckinthetree.com
