Ridgeline goshawk

Oct. 30 - 9 a.m.  Near Saint Mary's Church
1 NG, probably female, because the wings were too long for male NG. 3 pigeons were in flight, somewhat near by the NG, suggesting that the NG was much larger than a pigeon,suggesting female NG. The hawk in a strong glide had its wrists cocked well forward, with the head "hidden" in the valley of the wrists. The NG was coming off my ridge line and heading for down town Anacortes. Winds were steady at 10 miles per hour and cool temps at 39 degrees.
