|Grey Goshawk Accipiter
The Grey Goshawk is distributed sparsely along the eastern coast of Australia including Tasmania and along the northern coast from Kimberley to Cape York. They are more regularly found in the rainforests.
|There are two colour morphs:
a white and a grey. The white morph is predominant in Victoria
and is the only morph in Tasmania. Both morphs are found in equal
numbers in Northern Territory but the grey morph is very
predominant in Queensland and New South Wales.
This bird is a grey morph. The barring on the upper breast and the white on the wings indicate that it is a juvenile bird. Juveniles develop an orange eye by the 2nd year so this is a first year juvenile.
