Collared Sparrowhawk at the Wenlock River

Sign at the Wenlock River

Cape York, Queensland, Australia

October 14, 2012

 I was excited to pass across the Wenlock River last year. It was at the Wenlock back in the 70s that a seven year search by Jack and Lindsay Cupper for nesting Red Goshawks came to an end. They collected the first ever movie film of Reds at the nest and Australian photographic treasures. I remember it well from their book.

Just as I was taking pictures of the sign my eye caught a Collared Sparrowhawk passing right over me. Not a Red Goshawk but a welcome memory for my visit.

Collared Sparrowhawk

Possibly "Little Black Cormorants" but I'm not going to label them in case they're "Greats"

The photo was one minute after the sparrowhawk.
