CommentWhile hanging out the washing this morning, in a temperature of 4 degrees, I lifted my sights towards Mt Wellington on this chilly but sunshiny day. There in a nearby tall tree bereft of leaves was this white goshawk sunning himself. The tree was several back gardens away from ours. Washing forgotten I raced down the steps & inside, grabbed the camera & ran back to try a photo of this rare visitor from the mountains to the suburbs. Within 5 minutes he had flown up a bushy gully of Mt Nelson.
My books suggest this maybe a young male, because of his yellowish brown eyes & relatively small size. The white morph is the only "grey" goshawk which occurs here in Tasmania.
EquipmentCanon 80D Canon lens 100-400 mk 2,Ext 1.4 Handheld
1/2000; F8 437mm; ISO 800


As can be clearly seen I have not attempted to remove the innumerable twigs.
LocationSANDY BAY, Tasmania
