G'day everyone,


I need a bit of help getting a positive ID of these birds I spotted at
Warriewood Wetlands this morning.


The only information I can offer for a positive ID is that when I spotted
the nest with one of the birds was on it. Its tail was poking over the end,
and I noticed that the middle tail feathers appeared slightly longer than
the other tail feathers. This feature is my only defining feature to tick it
as a Brown Goshawk.


I know in the past couple of seasons that a Goshawk pair have nested at
Warriewood, but I don't know if it was a Brown or Grey Goshawk.


Also seen at Warriewood this morning, but not as exciting was a Rufous
Fantail and a female Rufous Whistler.
