A slender falcon with a brown back, white belly, and black streaks on the face. After talking to others, we believe she is either just scavenging or the goose was already sick and she could take it down easier. There is a huge size difference and this falcon taking on a healthy goose would be a big endeavor, though not impossible.
At the park in town. About the last place I would have expected to ever see a Prairie Falcon!
