Falco subniger

A wonderfully dramatic encounter with a Black Falcon. I like the tree it was on! The other bird is a Pied Butcherbird.

Fasciatus by Name


Brown Goshawk

Accipiter fasciatus

Murphys Creek, Queensland, Australia



"Fasciatus" refers to the fine banded markings on the goshawk's underside.

I think this is a young adult male.
