Jenner Goshawk yesterday Jenner Headlands Hawkwatch (video for refernce only)

This video is for reference only (this is NOT a video from Jenner)
We had a Northern Goshawk at Jenner Headlands Hawkwatch yesterday, the flight pattern was from north to south it was high in the sky but not too high to get the call wrong. It was very unlike any buteo, harrier, falcon or for that matter Sharp-shinned or Coopers Hawk .....super large accipiter, long tail, big head projection, bird formed a larger accipiter shaped "cross" silhouette and flew unlike any thing else I've seen (except the NOGO I saw last year at Jenner, the 2 I've seen at GGRO and the one I've seen in South Lake Tahoe) The bird had wing beats like the bird(s) in this video .... only the bird we saw yesterday was on a straight line north to south and not circling....
