Noisy Visitor

beth bird4Friends, this noisy goshawk is leaving the area in a hurry, Goshawks are notorious for the squawking that they do when in hand at Hawk Ridge.  This is a first year bird and is used to hollering for food in the nest.  His feathers are a bit ruffled as he gathers himself to continue his migration south.  Being a woodland bird, these are rarely seen except in the fall migration over Hawk Ridge.  The Goshawk count over the ridge is the highest anywhere in the US.  So the goshawk has become an icon of Hawk Ridge, til Tomorrow MJ
