The following is a digest of Sightings Reported on Birdpedia for the period 
Monday, November 30, 2020 to Sunday, December 6, 2020:

Area: SA

Date: Wednesday, December 2, 2020

Location: Adelaide Botanic Garden

Brown Goshawk (Accipiter fasciatus) (1) One or two yellow-tailed black 
cockatoos (YTBC) had been flying over high up all morning. Suddenly a YTBC flew 
at tree-top level with a brown goshawk in hot pursuit, very close and very 
aggressive, making a loud racket, both of them. They disappeared behind a tree 
... and silence fell. Heart in mouth I waited in trepidation.After a few 
minutes the YTBC flew out of the tree, so thankfully it was not turned into 
goshawk lunch.
Brown goshawks are sometimes seen in the garden and I have been told they nest 
there. I have also seen one in the grounds of St Peters College nearby.
