Northern Goshawk?

I’ve been trying to get a photo of this hunter of the skies for a very long time.

I often see it when it’s too late, in the midst of its steep dive onto its prey, for a while I believed someone was operating a drone and dropping it to ground quickly, but then realized its a raptor of some sort.

It lurks very high, floating when it can in wind gusts, scanning below, often turning its head completely to study the space beneath, and then it happens…wings fold, it drops from the sky at an angle, opening, adjusting wings to stay on course, and then, gone below the tree line where I am certain it gets its prey…
