The rosella pirate

The rosella pirate

Green Rosellas occassionally find their way into the berry cage to feast on strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and anything else we happen to be growing in there. After a while, they find their way out again and we have to mend the nets. This little male Brown Goshawk - so small I took him for a sparrowhawk until I looked at the pictures later - must have spotted a rosella and decided that berries are not the only good things to eat in a berry cage.
