CommentThis Goshawk took me by surprise. I had not seen it on the property before but it seemed to be familiar with the area (Karri Forest) , it glided low around the perimeter before landing again on the same branch. My settings were all wrong to capture it in flight (was focused on a BIB), should I have attempted it. I have identified it as a male adult, due to the faintly barred rufous on breast and to be honest closely matched the picture in the bird book. As gracefully as it arrived and glided several times, it gracefully disappeared in search of a more fruitful area one would assume.
