Three years ago I had a Crow fly through my backyard faster than I had ever seen a Crow fly. Right after the Crow passed, a Goshawk came through even faster. In a few seconds I heard the Crow calling a few times and then silence. Yep, you guessed it. The Goshawk nailed the Crow about 300 feet from my house and I found what was left of the Crow. I was sitting in the family room today watching the birds at the feeder and the squirrels on the ground eating sunflower seeds and shelled corn. Suddenly, the birds flew off and the squirrels hit the yrees and disappeared. Just that quick a Goshawk landed in the tree and stuck around for about 5 mikutes then left. Now I know what has been catching the birds now and then and leaving clumps of feathers. Thought it was the neighbors "ex-cat" which had been stinking up my patio area but turned out to be the Goshawk instead.
