Hi Birders,

After several sightings in the last few weeks of a large whitish bird around my place, I finally got the bins on it this morning. To my delight it was a Grey goshawk, perched high in a tree and checking the paddock below. There have been a few crimson rosellas killed around here lately too; all we found were a few feathers, and we thought it might have been a cat, but the kills have coincided with the goshawk’s presence so perhaps it is responsible. I never trust myself with a bird that Pizzey states is uncommon, but this morning I made my husband look at it, (no birder but with much better eyesight than me), and he agrees that it looks exactly like the pictures in all four of my guides, so I guess that’s a tick for me!
