Artist's Description

It looks to me like a member of the HAWK family and has been in and out of our garden quite a lot recently, perching quite happily on the bird bath and taking the occasional dip. It is very shy and will fly off the instant it hears a door opening, or sees me outside. As a result I took several photos – this one included – through the lounge window. Could it be a sparrow hawk? I know we have several bird experts in our midst so I’m hoping someone will come up trumps!
Our garden, by the way, is about 55 kms north of Perth, WA

LATER; I have now had positive identification – it is a Brown Goshawk. very many thanks for all your advice, help and interest.
Peter
