Observation details

Juvenile. It was chased over the boardwalk by the ravens which were nearly the same size. The goshawk had heavy brown streaks extending to its lower belly and leg feathers. I found it sitting on a branch in the woods when I left and noticed the white supercilium that widens at the back and the uneven barring on the tail.
