The Goshawk Wingbeat

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Friends, this slideshow is various positions of a Goshawk’s wings as he flies back into the wild.  Why so many images of the Northern Goshawk, you ask?, Hawk Ridge is the primary migration banding station for Goshawks, meaning that more Goshawks are counted and banded here than anywhere else in North America.  During the fall migration last year, over 200 birds were counted here, and thus far in this fall season close to 100 birds have been counted over Hawk Ridge, rising on the thermals beside Lake Superior.
