Collared Sparrowhawk - Accipiter cirrhocephalus.

View images of a Sparrowhawk prior to a hunt, perched in a tree in outback Northern Territory. Sparrowhawks prey on smaller birds such as Budgerigars and Finches. They are incredibly fast flying especially during a hunt as I observed one day when I witnessed a Sparrowhawk hunting a Finch.
