October 4th 2016 – Red tails in Spring

Numbers of red-tails roosting at UWA Sports Park Brockway Road Shenton Park have risen to around 100. They have only to fly east across the road to be in Lot 4, and a little further to be in the bushland. There they socialise, eat and  investigate tree hollows to possibly breed. This is a mature male with his tail feathers turned solid red.
