Brown Goshawk, Australian Magpie: Move Along, Nothing to See Here.
Brown Goshawk, Accipiter fasciatus, Australian Magpie, Gymnorhina tibicen
Nesting season for Maggie is over, but Territory must be held.
Initially the Goshawk had 4 rowdy shrill Maggies on its tail, but eventually they let this one carry the Goshawk out of the territory.
I also suspect that there was a little bit of bragging rights going on among the younger birds, as there was much carolling of congratulations when this one returned to the group.
