Neighbourhood watch

Yesterday morning there was a racket in the skies above my studio. Four Tui were circling and shrieking their alarm call.

I wondered what all the fuss was about. Finally they disapeared and were silent. A moment later a falcon flew past. I figured out what they were doing - it was Tui Neighbourhood Watch!

The falcon must have been perched nearby looking for prey. The Tuis let all the birds in the neighbourhood know to lay low, there was danger about. Falcon gave up and flew off in a huff!
