About this book

Learn about the habits and habitat of the Northern Goshawk, a fierce bird of prey that nests in the boreal forests far from human habitation. This hawk, about the size of a Common Raven, is capable of catching and killing large birds such as geese and grouse, and animals such as rabbits and hares. The Northern Goshawk is notorious for attacking anything, including people, that come close to its nest or young. Read firsthand accounts of this species' fearless hunting prowess. Learn about plucking posts – the place where goshawks dismantle their prey before delivering it to their young. Stories include historical accounts and personal accounts from the author, his friends, and research associates. Northern Goshawk, the Gray Ghost is filled with the author's photographs and illustrations from his many years spent studying the Northern Goshawk in all seasons.
