EDISON Goshawk

Also on 26 November  1:40 P.M.   D'arcy Road- EDISON
1 Goshawk soaring , flapping , and gliding at about 250 feet elevation. The sighting was naked eye- drive by. The sun was bright and zero wind. If I had stopped I would have been able to sex and age the Hawk. If you need binos to identify accipiters- then you certainly are not a hawk watcher.
