Read my posts with the following stupid accent: Canada
Also saw a very large unidentified hawk this morning, maybe following the mergansers as they seem to always have some kind of predatory bird shadowing them, often eagles.

The hawk flew too low to see a good silhouette, so all I got was large with an unusually large head.

It may have been a Northern Goshawk:

It's the right time of year, the right flight (low), and the right size.
