^one of the most incredible pursuits from a Gos that I've ever seen; it
really show cases the adept flight skills that these raptors possess!

Shin, thank you for posting these videos. I had no idea what goshawks were capable of before. They are fast becoming one of my favorite birds.
A pine needle fell. The eagle saw it. The deer heard it. The bear smelled it

it's interesting to note the different appearances in the subspecies of these birds that
occur in different continents & within the same countries as well.

Some notable differences:

-Only North American birds develop the Blood-red eye, with all
other sub species only developing either yellow or orange eyes as adults.
American birds can have extremely fine barring on the chest/abdomen
and vertical streaks that may give the visual effect of it's underside as 
looking 'grey' from a distance.

3 American subspecies exist: 
-The nominate "American Goshawk"
-The Queen Charlotte/Vancouver Isle/Insular Goshawk
-The Apache Goshawk 

-
-Siberian subspecies grow to be the largest, and can also range from pale
grey to pure white, known as the "albidus" Goshawk.

-The Albidus form also occurs in Finland & Norway

-The Japanese sub specie has the shortest wings relative to it's body,
has the darkest coloration, and the heaviest barring on it's body.
