Mr Marsh grabbed his camera and they snapped a photo of the fierce-eyed bird of prey. “It must have been soaring over Northbridge and spotted this poor dove in our backyard,” Mr Marsh said.

An avivore, the goshawk mainly feeds on other birds, often lying in wait until prey comes within attack range.
