Goshawk in Albion
- 6 April 2011 - Our rooster alerted us to the presence of a large
Accipiter in a nearby redwood tree. Assuming it was a Cooper's Hawk we
paid little heed, until it emitted a loud, rather nasal-sounding call;
not a Red-Shouldered scream. It repeated this a few times, then flew
off; as it did so, I noticed that it seemed too large, and too pale
gray, for a Cooper's. Just now I went through the Stokes Guide bird
calls and confirmed that it was a Northern Goshawk.
It headed north... as many raptors seem to be doing these days.
