I have been watching a pair of Collared Sparrowhawks in behind the middle dam behind Deakin for the last few days.  The female gets very stroppy every time I appear and comes very close to clouting me on the head, so I'm assuming there is a nest nearby, which I am yet to find.  Although I've seen the odd CS in this area, I've never previously seen a pair nor any sign of breeding activity.

Matthew Higgins here.  Saw this bird just now on western side of Mt Ainslie (and heard its mate).  Steph and I are tending toward collared sparrowhawk, rather than goshawk.  What do people think?
