Japanese Sparrowhawk of FRIM

This Japanese Sparrowhawk is a bird of prey and it was my first encounter with a hawk.
I was pretty elated, you guessed right. Luckily I was not too panicky to scare her off, phew!

Apparently, this Japanese Sparrowhawk hunt almost exclusively on small passerine birds.

Definitely not Japanese Sparrowhawk, the stripes on the throat are too prominent. It's a male Crested Goshawk.
