Four New Falcons Launched on Top of City Building

A record number of new Falcons will be launched to the public from the top of a 33 storey building in Collins Street, Melbourne.

Four baby Peregrine Falcons, nesting on top of The Optus Centre with their parents, will be banded tomorrow for research and conservation as part of the Victorian Peregrine Project.

This particular model of Falcon flies at speeds similar to a V8 Supercar when hunting its prey. Peregrines cannot build their own nest and normally lay eggs on a cliff ledge, but this couple has found sanctuary on the top of the building in the heart of Melbourne.

WHAT: Banding new Falcons for conservation, on top of The Optus Centre at 367 Collins St, Melbourne.

WHERE: Level 33, The Optus Centre, 367 Collins St, Melbourne, Victoria.

WHEN: 9am - Meet in the foyer of The Optus Centre at the video display on the left, where you will be met and accompanied to the top of the building. At this point the Falcons will be banded and there will be question time with Victor Hurley, the coordinator of the project. At approximately 9:30am, camera crews and photographers will be able to take photography/footage of the birds and their nesting area.

TV/PHOTO: Spectacular views and an opportunity to capture footage and imagery of this rare and beautiful bird in an unusual environment.
