This Sparrowhawk got stuck in my greenhouse area, i go it out without any trouble. This one has a nest in the trees of my front yard, i see it fly over every now and then. Took me a long time to finally figure out what it is

These little fellows also live in Brisbane. I saw one only a few months back, of all places on my neighbour's roof. My cats alerted me to its presence. They were howling as if in a fight. I went looking for an intruder cat, but instead saw the Sparrowhawk. Just goes to show animals know a predator when they see one, even on their first encounter. Lovely photos by the way, Taylor.
