Beautiful bird. Looks like an orange-breasted falcon to me:

On second thoughts its more likely to be a bat falcon which apparently looks very similar but is much more common:

Thanks, thought it would be a bird of prey, with that beak and talons.

I've emailed the camera control room to ask for confirmation.

And they've moved the camera.

I've been keeping an eye on it, too. I posted this thread click here and am now in the process of putting a movie together featuring the Falcon.

Is there a way to save the whole movie?
