Two goshawks

Oct 1, 2013 2:45 PM Anacortes, Wa. near Mt. Erie Elementary School

2 Goshawks (individual sightings) The first sighting was of a male goshawk.  The hawk was fresh, in hunting mode, ripping through the sky and dropping near tree tops and flying away, observed about 30 seconds.  Within 2 minutes  a female Northern Goshawk lifted to be with a soaring turkey vulture.  Observation time was about 2 minutes.  I went to this grassy walkway up against the forest expecting to observe goshawks and in this precise area of the sky.
