Goshawks are pretty terrifying. I don’t have first hand experience in this, but I had a friend who stayed up in northern Minnesota to do a grouse survey – and every time they went back to their cabin they had to pass a goshawk’s nest. Every time they did they had to carry sticks with them or something to make noise to try to ward off the goshawk if it came swooping after them. I remember my friend describing a time where she had to basically run for he life waving those sticks because the goshawk was swooping down right at her level.
