Falcon nesting in an old tree

Recommended Posts

That's in Australia...I have an Australian book with a picture of that same car on the back cover.

That photo has been seen around the internet for probably 20 years or more...would love to know the story behind it.   A Falcon was abandoned decades ago in a forest and a tree grew up around it?

My guess is that flood waters put it there.

Doubt it. When the tree was smaller, it wouldn't have had the strength to start lifting a ton and a half of car.

Trees can grow around and through a car, but not lift it off the ground. 

Looks like someone cut a section away from a large tree and placed the car there. I've seen other pictures of similar projects in other locations. It definitely attracts attention!

Well that reminds me of this ... Some years back some Canadian kids (I think they were) decided to come down and chain a VW bug to the Golden Gate Bridge and throw it over.285CA22E-3235-4E8D-803B-1CD2C762BF9E.jpeg.3fe70436a5eadbfed475ad65b914baae.jpeg

just saying those pics are not from the same bridge

I think it’s because from the angle of the square photo, you wouldn’t have been able to see it since it was directly under the bridge, and the G.G. is a huge bridge, so the pic in the small circle was taken from quite a distance which would explain the hazy image since there was probably mild haze in the air.B373017E-7C28-487F-BFA0-1FCFD148FE75.jpeg.ec606a405177852d87526a3312717dd0.jpeg

I call foul.

How would they have had time to set all that up beforehand. Stop traffic with a big truck when they get there, and rush to hook up and hoist that much metal over the safety railing and get away without ANYONE noticing?

Either that or people there are totally clueless. That bridge has a lot of traffic on it all day long!

And how would they know that they were Canadian unless they were caught?

Hopefully this link works right. It contains a detailed story about the prank https://www.macleans.ca/general/ 

EDIT: Wrong link above ... try this one instead https://www.macleans.ca/general/i-prank-therefore-i-am/

Re EDIT: Sorry, don’t understand why the links aren’t working

This is where the story is if you want to search it for yourselves:
