Crested Goshawk

I saw this Crested Goshawk resting on the fence of a gas station in the eastern Taiwan port Su-ao. It just caught a huge mouse and couldn’t fly too far immediately. I could get pretty close to it to take cell phone photos, then got back to my car to take the camera. Afterwards it flew to a tree on a nearby hill to enjoy its meal. Crested Goshawks are one of the raptors which can dwell in urban areas in Taiwan.
