Bingo - female Goshawk

16 November 2008 at sun-up; VRVP
A "large" accipiter cut into the houses 200 yards from my position. It was much too windy to expect observing any perched or in flight raptors. But, near the patio area and flying over and to the side of patio, and heading toward the desert scrub, was a mature female Northern Goshawk. The sighting was naked eye and without my corrective eyeglasses. This is probably the same bird as sun-down bird of the night before. This bird came from the direction of the bird the night before was heading.
