Northern goshawk survey

Northern goshawk

Nest surveys were conducted in northern Minnesota in addition to the use of radio telemetry to track the northern goshawk (Accipiter gentilis). With the aid of aircraft and radio telemetry, it was discovered that the northern goshawks do not leave Minnesota in the winter. Additional flights are planned in hopes of gathering further information regarding these beautiful raptors.
