Roof-top goshawk

11 May  12 Noon  Saint Mary Church
With bright sun, while sitting on my deck which over-looks downtown Anacortes, a bird was heading toward me, and flapping. The bird was dark. Only when the bird was directly overhead, and then just cleared the top of the roof, did I realize that the bird was a mature Northern goshawk. The hawk was so close that I could not fathom the size. As the bird was approaching my position, it seemed as if the wings were too long to be a male goshawk.
