Check out the last half of the video about the flight of the Goshawk.

The Goshawks are considered "master of maneuver." They are quite capable of flying through thick forest and bushes with great accuracy. I don't think I would even attempt to approach a Goshawk's nest like we did with the Swainson's Hawk this summer. Their aggressiveness, speed, and maneuverability could injure us severely even if trying to stand next to a post or a tree.

Please feel free to click on any of the photos below to enlarge.

Swainson's Hawk warning the trespasser, who parked on the side of the road next to the nest and got out of the car to photograph the divebombing action, to back away from its nest. These hawks and the younglings are no longer at the nest.

Thanks to Ray, Richard, and Corey for hosting a banding session. It was great to see most of my local contacts out there.

Two more photos added in the comment box. Enjoy and have a great long weekend!
