Today I saw an accipeter fly over. It was brown overall, meaning it was a juvenile. I was not able to see the tail bands and was wondering what people would think it was. It was being mobbed by a crow, and I realized it was the same size as the crow. (American Crow). Its flight was short quick flaps followed by long glides. I'm thinking Goshawk. Any ideas? I think it was too big for a sharp shinned. Thanks
