Western Goshawk in California

I see very little or no mention of the Goshawk (Astur atricapillus striatulus) in published lists appearing in THE CONDOR from time to time. I might say that I got a fine specimen, a female in full plumage, on January 6, 1907, at North Palo Alto, San Mateo County.

In October, 1900, at West Rialto, in San Bernardino County, I saw another but could not get a shot at it. It was trying to catch doves feeding on the weed seeds, but failed, on the two trips it made to the place while I was there. It was very wild, and I could not get within a hundred yards of it.
