more Goshawks

3 March 2008 10 AM. UA Campus
1 mature female Gos; EOB- 300-500 feet. OT- 15 seconds. This was my 6th or 7 th trip to the campus. On 3 of those birding trips, I have found mature Goshawk; twice perched and once in flight.

6 March 2008 9:30 AM. Sweetwater Wetlands
1 male Goshawk; EOB-200 feet. OT- 1minute. The bird was flapping (as a Goshawk flaps) and gliding on wings with pointed tips and wings with typical S shape (large arm-small hand). Also saw Peregrine Falcon, Prairie Falcon, Kestrel, Red-Tailed Hawks, and Harris' Hawks. ALSO- 2:30 PM., RVP; 1 Goshawk; EOB- 200 feet. OT-about 5 minutes. I chased the bird on bike with camera, for nearly 1 mile. But the bird kept drifting away.
