Description

A big Bird of prey swooped down from the deep woods and nearly went after my dog I think. It got really close to her, it was checking her out for sure. If my dog was a chihuahua I think she would have been a hawks lunch. I wondered if the Hawk was going to attack me as it checked me out too. Maybe it was nesting in the deep woods?? It flew away before I could get a good picture of it, then it sat on a branch and watched us for few seconds before it left. I was deep in old growth hemlock, never seen a hawk in that habitat before.. here are two really bad pictures of it. I guess the hawk saw the movement and thought mouse only to swoop down and see a dog??? Someone suggested northern goshawk
