Goshawk in Action


The Northern Goshawk (Accipiter gentilis) is the largest representative of the forest-dwelling, short-winged, bird-killing family of hawks. This video shows just how nimbly the ferocious goshawk can fly through tight spaces in the forest in pursuit of prey.

Why are ruffed grouse scarce this year? Ask Madame Goshawk.
