31 March 3:30 P.M. Below Saint Mary's Church-Anacortes
Looking toward the eagle nest, in full silhouette was a male goshawk. The hawk appeared to be black and was ripping through at such speed that it appeared to be a Merlin. Bright sun, as the hawk circled over and over again at about 600 feet from my position. The size,shape, structure,wing beats, and wing holding, suggested male goshawk. Observation time about 1 minute.
