Flowerly Trail hunt flight through the trees
Landed in tree and was chased off by two Hooded Crows. Accipiter at least as large as crows and with bulkier appearance. Presumed to be a male.
The Northern Goshawk /ˈɡɒs.hɔːk/ (Old English: gōsheafoc, "goose-hawk"), Accipiter gentilis, is a medium-large bird of prey in the family Accipitridae, which also includes other diurnal raptors, such as eagles, buzzards and harriers. As a species in the Accipiter genus, the goshawk is often considered a "true hawk".
