Mt. Erie mature Goshawk

Nov. 22  Campbell Lake Boat Launch Area 10:30 A.M - Anacortes.
1 Mature NG circling twice then over and behind the ridge line it went. Observation time 15 seconds. Bright sun, no wind, temps at 45. The sun reflected off the silver-gray chest and belly. The hawk was probably male, as the wings seemed too short to be a female NG. It looks like a hot-spot for observing more than one Goshawk. I have been to this area many times hawking. Now I understand that it is best to spend at least one and one-half hours at this location.
