As a contract biologist, I’ve worked on Northern Goshawk surveys in Utah, Arizona and California. Though the terrain and habitat has varied, the protocol remains the same. I follow a pre-set transect line, with calling stations placed about every 200 meters. At each point, I use a tape playback method that utilizes recorded calls of adults or juvenile Goshawks to elicit responses from those in the neighborhood. I continue, on foot, using a compass and intermittent flagging to find my next calling station. More

woodlands, the goshawk’s diet is mostly small mammals, such as squirrels and rabbits. They also take pigeons, pheasant and grouse, and are a leading predator of the crow. Because they prey less on insect eating birds, they have not declined as much due to pesticide poisoning as their smaller cousin, the Cooper’s hawk. In fact, they have spread south from the Canadian forests to take over cooper hawk territories in some areas. More

Both sexes have close horizontally barred underparts and a broadly barred grey tail. The broad whitish eyebrows (supercilia) and piercing orange-yellow eyes make the Goshawk evil-looking. More

goshawk is legendary for its ferocity, beauty, and amazing flight skills; in medieval Europe, goshawks were the most prized of all falconry hawks. Darting through trees beneath the forest canopy, they’re top-level predators. But as mature and old-growth forests suffer death by a thousand cuts, so do goshawks. In turn, their decline unravels forest ecosystems and puts stress on other species. More
