A medium-sized hawk with a distinctive head crest, piercing yellow eyes and a barred chest. This one has caught some sort of tasty insect, which Bazas enjoy along with tree frogs, lizards, small birds and fruit.
Seen in the grounds of the Chenrezig Institute (Buddhist study centre) near Eudlo in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
My first sighting of a Pacific Baza - I was terribly excited! The friend I was with had to wait while I took about 400 shots. : )
