Northern Goshawk

Rare, irregular winter visitor in DE. Seen only in flight for about 10-15 seconds as I was driving through the headquarter's parking area. The bird was flying past me just above eye level about 20yds away. I was immediately struck by the bird's size. This was a large, robust accipiter brown above and heavily streaked with brown below. The tail was long with brown bands. The wings were broad reminding me more of a buteo than accipiter. The flight was fast with rapid stiff wingbeats. I think the bird's large, heavy size and the amount of heavy brown streaking on the breast and belly rules out both SSHA and COHA. The observation was too quick for me to grab my camera from the rear seat and I wanted to make sure I could ID the bird.
