At four-thirty this evening I left the YMCA at West Florissant and Pershall Roads in Ferguson, MO and saw a Northern Goshawk fly across the soccer field and land in a tree. Through the scope I was able to identify it as an adult bird. I watched the bird for several minutes, inching my way close enough to even get the red eye ring, supercilium and barring on the chest. After awhile the bird flew off.
 
Robert Fisher's and Edge Wade's prediction that Northern Goshawks are in Missouri turned out to be true. I wish others the same luck I had. By the way the screaming of Blue Jays led me to look out over the soccer field where I spotted the accipter.
