My first post on this blog was about a Brown Goshawk caught in a friend’s chicken coop. That was back in August 2009. Here it (or a relative) is again, same spot, over two years later.
Brown Goshawk (Accipiter fasciatus) in chicken coop. The bird escaped unharmed. "We eventually steered the bird out of the little pen and after catching its breath on the wire outside it flew off. The raptor would have a full belly as the feathers are from a bar-shouldered dove and there wasn’t anything left apart from feathers." Photo Raelene Neilson.
