Thanks for the replies.  Here is Cornell's answer to my email:

A Northern Goshawk does not have rufous barring on the chest, only dark brown vertical stripes as a juvenile or gray bars as an adult. But more importantly, the tail is too short for any of the accipiters, and the white bars in the tail are too bright. This is a Red-shouldered Hawk. You can learn more about them on the Lab's All About Birds website:

That's what I was thinking, Coop or Sharpie.  Was it dove or crow size?

From her vantage point, she's saying bigger than a crow.  That would lean toward Cooper's Hawk, but the coloring seemed darker than other photos I've seen.  I'm not seeing the trademark yellow eyes of a juvenile, but the hawk many have been too distant for the camera to pick up that detail.  Oh, I've just come across a Cooper's photo with the darker coloring.  Looks pretty close:  http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/coopers_hawk/id

Isn't it way past time for DC to migrate?
66  Anything Else / Totally OT / Extra! on: 22-Nov-13, 04:35:55 pm
50 years ago today, I arrived home from school and set out on my bike on my 3+ mile paper route, delivering the Rochester Times-Union to customers in and around Livonia Center, NY. While the Times-Union was an "evening" paper, it was printed mid-afternoon so it contained mostly yesterday's news. Many customers anxiously awaiting their papers met me at their front doors, only to be disappointed by a lack of any word of the assassination. Remember that this was a time when we received much of our detailed news reporting on a delayed basis on newsprint with printer's ink that blackened our fingers, and not from instantaneous tweets, blogs, emails, and online updates. While I was out delivering the regular edition, my district manager called and left word that an Extra Edition was on the way. I'd seen plenty of black and white era movies featuring newsboys hawking extras on busy city street corners, but in my 3+ years of rural newspaper delivery, November 22, 1963 was the only day I experienced an Extra Edition. As I retraced my route with a bicycle basket full of Extras sometime after 7 PM, I was struck by the immensity of delivering the first in-depth printed accounts of the day's shocking events to so many households in our community. That memory stays with me to this day.

On a related matter: 

While in town this afternoon, I stopped at the Dollar General store in search of a Hershey's Dark Chocolate bar (to shave thin as a topping for vanilla ice cream.) Next to the Hershey's bars, I found the Dollar General store-brand chocolate bars, 3.5 ounces for $1 each. According to the label, 100% of the proceeds go to the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. Pay a dollar for the candy bar and the Store passes it on to the Foundation. I Googled the Foundation this evening and looked at their most recent tax return. Looks like they make literacy-promoting grants to many schools, libraries, civic groups, and other worthwhile organizations, and their administrative expenses are very low. If you're going to buy a candy bar anyway, check out the Dollar General line.

This will probably be debunked as yet another Internet hoax, but it was fun.  10 wrong, 73%.   paperbag

Something is askew here.  The referenced link is dated July 2013 but appears to be reporting data from 2004 (http://www.peer.org/news/news-releases/2004/10/14/yellowstone-wildlife-ravaged-by-road-kill/).  And poor Gale Norton is catching Hell now but hasn't been in the job since 2006 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gale_Norton).

I'm not seeing her antenna.  Does she still have it?

"We see the loss of a chick by natural causes as an educational moment as this happens in nature all the time," said Strassburger.

So perhaps this ruling will apply only to natural bridges?  Roll Eyes
