- This morning (Sun Nov 4) I drove up to the Angelo Coast Range Reserve
near Branscomb to see if I could find any goshawks. I hiked around for
a couple hours with no luck and resigned myself to it being a no go for
NOGO. Fortunately, just before I got back to my car, I heard a NORTHERN
GOSHAWK calling up on the hillside. I ran out into the middle of a
nearby meadow and could see the trees the bird was calling from but
couldn't see the bird. Finally, after about ten minutes, the bird flew
out, made a lazy circle over the meadow so that I could get a great
look, and then returned to it's hidden spot in the trees.

At approximately 7:15 a.m., a Northern Goshawk flew across Highway 20 about 200 yards west of the James Creek bridge.
