Northern Goshawks

The Northern Goshawk (Accipiter gentilis) is  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.
