hawk? kite?

I live in Nth East Victoria.

I would like to know how I can tell what bird of prey I see/ hear.It is quite common in the Summer months

I thought it was the whistling kite, but maybe it is the Brown Goshawk or the Little Eagle.

It has a shrill call eee-eee-eee, soars high. It flies alone. It appears brown. i'm not sure what colour the underside is.

Hope someone can help. i was trying to find the site with birdsounds as it has a very distinctive call which I'm sure I could recognise.

Thanks for your helpful notes Dennis

I think it is the Brown Goshawk. My neighbour thought it might be a Sparrowhawk.

I will try to get a better view of it.
