    Equipment Note

One kestrel is perched on the branch of a tree approx. 80 ft. west of nest site BU-1. A group of approx. 6-10 white-eyes are in a tree approx. 12 ft. from the kestrel moving rapidly within the branches and vocalizing. The second bird flies in from east to west carrying a lizard in its talons at approx. 4:42. It lands next to the first bird at approx. 5:01. The two birds vocalize with one another in close proximity and then the second bird relenquishes the lizard to the first bird. It then flies to branch approx. 4 ft. above the first bird. It perches there for several seconds before eventually flying away.
