A brown raptor (brown wings front and back), with yellowish legsĀ was attempting to get at a juvenile butcher bird that was in a cocky cage on the back deck. The Raptor was only seen briefly but appeared to be have a wingspan around 60cm. It stood about 45 cm tall. Those size estimates are very approximate.
