Wildlife in Central Australia
Alice Springs and surrounding region provides a popular spot for some bird watching. There some permanent and semi-permanent waterholes in some of the gorges along the MacDonnell Ranges that help to sustain life.

Alice Springs also has a number of key locations with water that attract bird life, including the Alice Springs Desert Park, Olive Pink Botanic Garden and the Alice Springs Treatment Plant (Alice Springs Sewerage Ponds).

Pictured here is the Collared Sparrowhawk, sometimes mistaken for the Brown Goshawk. One of the key feature differences between the two is that the Collared Sparrowhawk has staring yellow eyes, that look fierce, but without the heavy brow ridge of the goshawk, which gives the goshawk a 'glowering look'.

When in flight, the Collared Sparrowhawk the tip of the spread tail is square, unlike that of the goshawk which has a more rounded tail tip.

The Collared Sparrowhawk is found almost everywhere in Australia, inhabiting forest and woodland, including the narrow tree lines allong watercourses of the arid interior and coastal forest.
