Hi Stuart

It is highly likely that there is a resident pair of Pacific Bazas (Crested
Hawks) at or near Cumberland SF. I know for sure that they breed around
Epping/Pennant Hills (only a few km from Cumberland SF) as I have seen a
pair feeding yound ones there. I have seen the ones that breed in late
spring/early summer at Glenorie (NW Sydney)  each year at other times beside
the nesting season, at or close to the nesting area. There has been a number
of reports of Bazas nesting throughout the Sydney area and they appear to be
increasing. Many though do appear to move around in winter.

Does anybody know how far south they have bred along the NSW coast?
