Large robust raptor sitting on tree top as I rounded the corner of gravel road while driving. Hawk took off flying away from me down the road. Large accipiter with stiff wing beats, long tail and large chest. My initial impression was Red-tailed Hawk, but quickly switched to goshawk. Not as lanky or long-tailed as a Cooper’s Hawk. Wing beats were not as fast as a Red-shouldered Hawk and the bird’s back was a solid color.
