One Goshawk- Mt. Erie School

7 May  9:15 a.m. Mt. School
1 NG probably male, since the wings were not long. The tail was very long. The hawk was at about 150 feet elevation, and observed broadside for about 1,000 yards. The breeze was cold and damp, with a heavy marine layer. The hawk was probably coming from downtown Anacortes.

spring Goshawk

5 May  9:20 a.m. and 12:20 P.M. Saint Mary's Church
1 NG, probably male. The wings were not long, nor stubby. Observation time about 4 minutes, as the hawk was at 200-250 feet elevation. The hawk was heading toward downtown Anacortes.
At 12:20 P.M., 1 male NG coming from Anacortes. The hawk was attacked by 2 large crows. The NG was slightly larger than the crows. This hawk had the same proportions as the morning Goshawk, so it was probably the same hawk.
