At the Ansonia Nature Center several years ago the Goshawk nest was fairly close to a residential area. Most likely the edge of the forest was the edge of its territory, which put the Goshawk's territory almost in someone's back yard

In other words detecting accipiter nests seems to be Goshawk: most common, Coopers Hawk: slightly less common, Sharp-shinned: extremely difficult to encounter at all.  Not that finding nesting any accipter nest is an every day occurrence.  Finding any nest is a rare occurrence, congratulations.
