White goshawk

A friend took this shot of a white goshawk (the white morph of the grey goshawk, Accipiter novaehollandiae) out the back of Nimbin recently.

Goshawks feed on rabbits, possums, bats, birds, small mammals, reptiles and insects, and form permanent pairs that defend a home territory year round. So with a bit of luck this beautiful bird will be seen around more often.
