Phalcoboenus is Greek for
falcon walking;
carunculatus
means a bit of flesh.
Oh how I love a place for inspiration 
a place for my recreation 
There I would go with camera in my hand 
and with a mono pod pointing to the sand 
My aim was to a Cara Cara
I then can obtain a photographic victory 
I can be the bard of bird photography
