I have read about the White Goshawk flying with Sulphur-crested Cockatoos as camouflage to approach it's prey. Well I watched one fly into our patch of bush near Shellharbour, 100 Km south of Sydney, and the the bush exploded with S-cC sqarking and swooping the bird. Every time the Goshawk moved the Cockatoos again exploded into the air until the poor Goshawk took off for quieter pastures. With the intolerance they showed to this Goshawk I can not imagine them sharing their air space in a flock.
Cheers   Chris
