Default Brown Gohawk

Spotted this Brown Goshawk on my walk this morning.



Happy to say it was in the same area as I walked by in the late afternoon.



Just a youngster and still learning how to hunt, I watched a couple of unsuccessful attempts, hopefully I'll see some successful ones soon.

Really nice captures. What equipment did you use?

I wonder if you can bait these guys with a dead mouse. Pull the bird out from behind those little branches that make the pics less than ideal.

Interesting idea Bynx, it need someone with more patience than I have to set it up though.
