Observed Individual(s) in Hand or Close Range
Resident in the Hughes Creek vicinity called to report that a hawk had crashed through a window and was trapped in a room in their home, probably for several days. I responded and found an immature male goshawk, uninjured, in a bedroom. From amount of droppings, estimate bird was trapped for 2-3 days. Likely chasing songbirds at feeder and flew into/broke through double-paned window. Captured and examined bird in hand; determined to be in good condition. Released the bird outside the residence; flew strong at release.
