Abstract


The Brown Goshawk (Accipiter fasciatus) is common and widespread in Australia, in- cluding Tasmania. It is also found on New Guinea, Timor, Christmas Island and in In- donesia (Brown and Amadon 1968) but does not occur in Fiji as reported by some (e.g., Slater1970; Condon1975 and Morris 1976). Very little has been published on its biology and there are no records of successful captive breeding. Our objective in captive breeding was to supplement studies on wild pairs. In addition, the endemic Christmas Island A.f. natalis is considered endangered (Curry-Lindah 1977), and captive breeding may help ensure its survival.
