Thank you, Philip.  They weren’t there together, the CSH arrived just after a magpie had despatched the hobby.

Hi Margaret,


That is nice. They are a juvenile Collared Sparrowhawk and an adult Australian Hobby. I would expect they don't like each other, so an interesting juxtaposition.

I got lucky this morning at the Jerrabomberra Wetlands when, within three minutes of each other, two different raptors perched in the same tree.  They were a bit too far away for good shots, but one is either a collared-sparrowhawk or brown goshawk, the other may be a falcon or hobby.  I would appreciated positive identification if possible.

Thank you all.
