Earlier in December i saw the juvenile Northern Goshawk a number of times at Maplewood Flats in North Vancouver.
Many times it was spotted along the central access road/path by the pond, numerous birders got to see it but i have not seen any shots of it posted here.

First time i saw it was Dec 15th but it may very well still be in the area.
Check ebird for sightings.

it was very foggy and late afternoon when i spotted the bird the first time, watched it fly low through the trees until it landed near the bridge.

got it early one morning as well in better light, super nice to run into old birding acquaintances Tak (+ his wife) and Raymond on separate occasions, good to share nice looks at this powerful bird, disliked by crows.
PS, Roger F. hope you got that certain bird you were looking for a number of times, good chatting with you as well, always respect birders who have been at it almost as long as i have been alive :)
