Grey Goshawk

Accipiter novaehollandiae

Description:

Bird of prey. White morph of the Grey Goshawk. The Grey Goshawk is listed as endangered in Tasmania, where only the white morph variety is found.

Notes:

Second visit to our house. Seems to fly in to a tree in the back yard, look around. Then move on. We have lots of small birds in the area (sparrows, finches, etc.), wondering if it preys on them.

Lovely Japh. Just a few days ago, I saw one on our road, similarly perched on a power pole. I tried to get a shot from my phone but it flew off before I got the camera feature functioning. I'm hoping it will stick around. But we're not as near to water as you are, and they prefer wet forest. Although, it might be a young bird looking for open territory.

I wish I'd gotten a better photo. Next time he visits, I'll have a better lens on.
