Northern Goshawk ~ This isn't a particularly good photograph, but I was thrilled to get any picture at all of this wonderful forest hawk.  He flies very fast in forests, zipping around and between trees, altering his angle and position to avoid collision.  His fast stealth flight is his means of taking birds and small mammals by surprise, finding breakfast on the fly.  He was photographed at Virginia Lakes, at high elevation, north of Lee Viniing, in the eastern Sierras.
