More Goshawks

With sunshine, mild conditions and a steady breeze, I headed to the forest to see if the Goshawks were getting frisky. Sure enough they were, with lot of display seen and incessant calling. I checked out three sites, with birds seen at each, a total of about 12 individuals. The adult females were doing a lot of stiff-winged flapping, with high amplitude wingbeats and puffed out undertail coverts. Lots of Crossbills and Siskins around too.

Adult male (top) and female (other four), with an immature female with the adult in the second photo.
