Papa Tom Posted December 19, 2018 Share Posted December 19, 2018 A Sharp-shinned Hawk was eating it’s kill when this hawk swooped in nearly hitting it. Considerably larger than the SSH it buzzed (or was attacking). It took over the SSH’s partially eaten kill. At first considered it was a RTH but not after it turned and it’s breast showed. I’m leaning to Northern Goshawk juvenile. It’s face has grayish cheek patch, black line between eye and bill, white eyebrow streak. CH face is evenly white / brown streaking. NG folded wings have bolder white markings, irregular banded tail while the CH tail is evenly banded. Oneida County, NY Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
