Crested Goshawk

posted in: Raptors | 0

This female Crested Goshawk (Accipiter trivirgatus indicus) attacked a pair of Thick-billed Green-Pigeon (Treron curvirostra) that were in courtship but failed to snag any.


It then attempted to use this bare tree as a vantage point but was harassed by a Large-billed Crow (Corvus macrorhynchos macrorhynchos). The Crow did many fly-by to hassle the Goshawk until it left. The handheld video (using a branch as support) shows the Goshawk being unsettled; not able to see the Crow overhead:
