Not to pile on, obviously bird was a long way off. But yeah, Coop all the way
for me as well. Its funny, Cooper's often get called as Gos, and by experienced
birders at times like this, but very seldom is a Gos called a Cooper's. We've
all been there one way or the other, thanks for sharing Kevin.

Dr. Fred Alsop's ornithology class was treated to a Northern Goshawk
soaring around the ridge line near the power station on Wilbur Lake
approximately where the Bald Eagles nested 4 years prior (for those of
you who know). I was able to get a very grainy image as the bird was far
away, but the bird was all gray, no rusty underparts. The bird was
large. I initially called it a Red-tailed based on the wings before I
saw the tail and Doc corrected me. Pics attached.
