Richard sends in photos and an explanation:

What appears to be an immature northern goshawk perched in a tree in the 2400 block of E. Grace St. Monday evening. This one had a squirrel in his talons. He flew to the tree from the area of St. John’s Church and spent close to an hour slowly enjoying his dinner and seemingly oblivious to the passers-by and spectators.

Goshawks are rather scarce and not usually seen. This is the extreme southern limit of their range.
