Red goshawk

Erythrotriorchis radiatus

The Red goshawk is unique to Australia and sadly now very rare and listed on the threatened species list.

In NSW, it may be observed in the Clarence River Catchment, and a few around the lower Richmond and Tweed Rivers. It is sparsely found through northern and eastern Australia, from the western Kimberley Division of northern Western Australia to north-eastern Queensland and south to far north-eastern NSW, and with scattered records in central Australia.

In NSW, preferred habitats include mixed subtropical rainforest, Melaleuca swamp forest and riparian Eucalyptus forest of coastal rivers.
