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.

I'm old enough to remember Falcons, but I've never even seen a picture of one nesting. I worked on the Mississippi Gulf Coast in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and I saw lots of strange nesting behavior there. It seems that natural disasters often upset the natural order of things. We found a Corsair nesting on a rooftop, and a green & yellow Gator nesting on the bottom of a swimming pool. Some Coffins floated out of their nests in the ground.

Here in Mexico that was a FORD 200 1963, the word Falcon was a trade mark so FMC had to change the name. My father in that days was working in the Ford company and bougth one, so I know it, and I enjoyed driving it. :wink:

I've always been amused by the fact that the Falcon never sold very well. But when Lee Iacocca built the Mustang body on the Falcon frame (with no significant changes), it was a great hit. It's design that turns our heads, not mechanics.

The Falcon was very popular here in Australia.

Nice photo, Harry. This is a good reason for driving and drinking.

Bumper sticker- Don't drive and drink. You might hit a bump and spill some.

Harry, a friend of mine had a Falcon that was like a Ranchero style. Rare I suspect as I’ve only seen his

Harry, it was a dog here in the USA. Today the early Mustangs are a premium, the Falcons were all recycled.
