WHEN Voice readers Sandy and Chris Marsh spotted the remains of a dove in their Northbridge back garden they suspected neighbourhood cats. But they quickly spotted a more majestic predator sitting on the nearby fence, a brown goshawk rarely seen in the inner city.
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.
