Red Goshawk at Farina – not

Hello Geoff,

From the photo, it is without any doubt, a Little Eagle. That was my guess after your first message. Apart from several aspects of the colour pattern not at all matching a Red Goshawk, the fully feathered legs, down to the toes, immediately rule out any kind raptor, other than an eagle. RG have feather- bare lower legs. In any case they would not be there.
