Friends, these images illustrate differences in individual Northern Goshawks. Both birds are first year hatch birds, both males but the white content varies from white in the right hand bird to a cream color in the left hand image. Both images were balanced with the white in the bird and the backgrounds are very different, but i think the differences in color is apparent. The educators at Hawk Ridge are very knowledgeable and they run a very good adoption program. If you wish you may adopt a goshawk or any other raptor listed on their site, thereby supporting their efforts to learn more about our hawks and other raptors. Their link is Hawk Ridge. til Tomorrow MJ

Glad you were able to experience the phenomena of raptor migration. I hear Hawk Ridge is great. I counted this fall at the Goshutes in eastern Nevada. I love it there. We trapped quite a few immature NOGO, each one different and wonderful. Great photos, keep up the good work.
