Snow today, heavy at times, kept a lid on hawk migration over Whitefish Point. Only a couple of presumed resident Bald Eagles were seen. Both birds landed in the dunes, where earlier several Ravens also had stooped down, probably on a carcass.
A few days ago, I posted a photo here of an immature accipiter, which I called a Northern Goshawk. Well, as some of my readers may have wondered, if that was a gos, it certainly was an unusual one. For anyone interested in hawk identification, a fairly detailed discussion of that bird, with additional photos in support of the ID, can be found on my other blog. I still think it's a gos, but I'm interested in hearing other people's opinions of this bird.
