During our latest trip to Australia, up above Gunlom Falls in the NT we spotted a dead branch laden with Sulphur-crested Cockatoos plus what appeared to be a smaller white cockatoo. It wasn't, it was a white-morph Grey Goshawk, and it had obviously chosen to perch with the cockatoos. .

Only on reading this thread does that sighting make sense.
