Mile up Goshawk

Nov.8  10:30 a.m.  Campbell Lake Rd. base of Mt. Erie
1 goshawk probably female as the wings were too long to be male. The sighting was first naked eye and identified as goshawk. The hawk was circling in tight circles at about 200 feet elevation. Then the hawk was glassed as it rapidly spiraled upward to well-over 5,000 feet elevation.The hawk then could not be seen naked eye. The hawk had a square-tip tail and buffy chest and belly. Observation time about 2 minutes.
