REU student plans Goshawk transmitter study

In just a few short days we will be headed into the field to spend our time in the company of our favorite birds! Yesterday we picked up our transmitters that REU student, Allyson, will use for her Northern Goshawk post-fledging movement, behavior, and survival study. Six lucky fledglings will get some additional hardware this season!
