Northern Goashawk

It had been a fairly uneventful day on the photo front at Reifel. Toward the end of the day while walking along the inside grassy trail the numerous Robins and some Flickers suddenly scattered. The reason became clear as I then saw the Northern Goshawk streaking through the trees. This carried on for a few minutes without the Goshawk catching anything.

The Goshawk then alighted briefly on a branch over the trail providing this photo opportunity. While not ideal, it is the clearest photo I have managed so far of this winter visitor at the sanctuary.
