Fukushimagata, Niigata, Japan
Almost every October I have found young goshawks around Fukushimagata with their eyes on the freshly arrived teal. This year a more mature bird has been on patrol.
There is usually one or two Eastern Marsh Harriers about the place as well and this one time I managed to see the two species interact. I think the goshawk is a female. Her body seems to be much bulkier than that of the harrier.
