A few years ago, Laura Erickson and I saw an immature Goshawk on a trip to
Blue Lake in the Shakopee/Savage area. I think it was there for quite a
while, as there were other reports as well. I don't know if they have a
food-related "irruption cycle" similar to other raptors and finches. That
would be something to study up on!

I let my friend Matt Seefeldt use my trail camera to guard a deer torso in
the Minnetonka area, he came up with this image.  I think this is an
immature goshawk.  I was a bit surprised that it
would be this far south.

Your thoughts?
