Sparrowhawk or E. Goshawk, Falsterbo Sweden (1 Viewer)


This photo shows a female sparrowhawk imo. I posted it in my instagram account "jaaserud" recently. A fellow birder however argues it shows a goshawk. The photo was taken last September 30th. during migration in Falsterbo. Bird Observatory stats shows a total of 25'000 passing sparrowhawks and only 4 goshawks counted last fall in Falsterbo. I would appreciate your thoughts. Thanks.20220930_Falsterbo__DSC9839.jpg
I can’t match your flight shot jaaserud, but here’s a shot I took of a local Sprawk a few weeks ago, they do compare rather well imo.👍
