What a fantastic view you must have had.  I once had Grey Goshawk in my 
Parap backyard (Darwin) preying on  Northern Water Dragons and another 
time a wierd looking adult bird that looked like a cross between Grey and 

A resident Brown Gowhawk lives in my neighbourhood.  It once attacked me 
while standing on the landing at the back of my elevated house (one of 
three occasions this species targetted me.  Must think I'm a spring 
chicken!).  But the funniest thing I saw occurred a few years ago, when 
an immature goshawk had a go at my resident scrubfowl.  The scrubfowl 
simply ducked and the goshawk crashed into an overhanging tree!
