A Little Banded Goshawk (Shikra) turned up again in my garden after a five year absence. I always wake up to the chirping sounds of Red Headed Finches and other birds from my garden. Surprised by the silence this morning; I went out to investigate.
All the feeders were deserted except for some few Laughing Doves hanging around on the fence. Looking up further into the canopy of the tall trees; there was the culprit – Little Banded Goshawk (Shikra) boldly staring at me.
