I just went outside to check on a very noisy flying flock of S-c Cockatoos over my house. In amongst them, a similar sized all white bird with a very different flight style, straight flat (not curved or bent) wings and a clearly very long tail. I could not make out long yellow legs but it didn’t show short black feet. The cockatoos separated and it flew off quickly at 90 degrees to their direction. A white morph Grey Goshawk. That is a first for me for home, though not for me for Canberra.
