Subject: IBET Goshawk at Montrose?
Did anyone record sighting one at Montrose on 11/14/2018?

In my video compilation of immature Cooper's Hawks at

it was pointed out to me on a nature FB site, that the bird(s) at 0:28
-1:06 and 1:06-1:19 are both of immature Goshawk.

This did not occur to me at the time.  The only one I ever saw before
and got shots of was at Lincoln Park Zoo 11/20/2007.

I was not very close, as I was shooting, from the revetment, to the
trees across the field, and didn't detect it as extra large. And when
the bird took off, as another birder had walked past/under,.  I am not
sure if he even noticed.  I had set the camera to record, and was
attending to something when it flushed, and would later trim out about
30" of hawk-less branches.  I knew when I saw that it was gone, that I
would have the takeoff.

The back view, when viewed later on the computer did impress me as
unusual, but still didn't register as another species.
