Author's notes

Hoping for confirmation either way of whether this is a C/Sparrowhawk or a B/Goshawk

The very square tail makes it a Collared Sparrowhawk.

Thanks Jackie, this had been confirmed on Canberra Nature Map prior to the boundary change but when it automatically got transferred to this atlas, the confirmation had been lost as the moderators don't have the same privileges on here

Hi Jackie, not sure why this came to me. I have never put in such a sighting. Chris

Chris- Because you reviewed it before on Canberra Nature Map (participation in the ID process), but this sighting needed reconfirming since this one is not in the Coastal Atlas location
PS. There are about 2 more bird ones that I would like you to have a look at on CNM
