Bird of the Week Challenge: 7th September - raptor rumble

Happy Monday everyone - gorgeous photos once again last week. 

This week I thought we would look at the raptors again, once of my favourite groups of birds, but one that I am appalling at ID'ing generally (except for the common ones). Hopefully a lot of you are checking out EagleCAM? The chicks are now 4 weeks old and looking fantastic!

Pacific Bazza on a tree in our yard a couple of months back. I can't work out what he is eating but think maybe one of our plump Green Tree Frogs. Sunshine Coast, QLD.

Our local Goshawk. 

When he's around, everything goes very quiet.

He caught an Eastern Spinebill right in front of me last week. Nature is nature, and can look cruel at times, but he is indeed a beautiful bird.

Raptors Rumbling. This Osprey was not having a bar of this White-Bellied Sea Eagle fishing on His turf! Not matter how much bigger he is.
