Description

Very large bluish-gray bird with light gray barred underparts and a broad wing-span. Its tail was spread wide in flight.

It flew very fast, maneuvering around the tall trees, and then quickly disappeared.

Its call sounded like: kreeeee.

As a species in the Accipiter genus, the goshawk is often considered a true "hawk".
