Advancing the core science for the species, focusing on the breeding and post-breeding ecology
The Northern Goshawk (Accipiter gentilis) is considered a sensitive species by the US Forest Service and has been petitioned on two occasions for endangered species status. Many national forests utilize the goshawk as a management indicator species.
The Intermountain Bird Observatory has studied the Northern Goshawk off and on since the early 1990’s
We have contributed directly and consulted for a number of forest management plans in Idaho and elsewhere, and have published a number of peer-reviewed manuscripts.
