NZ Falcon, Te Ahumairangi Hill

Falcon

One of a pair of Falcons that have nested on Te Ahumairangi Hill (Tinankori Hill) in Wellington this year.  Their nest is just off the main northern walkway route, and the Falcons vigorously defend their territory if anyone approaches.

Update January 2016 – they had 3 chicks.  Keeping an eye out for them as they mature.
