Observation details

Seen flying NW at ca 0745 over the east property boundary near the stream - then at least one of the AMGO seen chased by a small raptor which tried to grab the goldfinch several times, high over the creek, but missed and disappeared to the east. Ca AMKE size or a bit bigger. Rapid wingbeats; acrobatic flight; not seen gliding; streaky underneath. Suspected it was MERL or AMKE, but not positive - possibly SSHA as well, though behavior seemed very falcon-like.
