Play For Keeps

Female northern goshawk posted up with its prey, an unlucky barn owl.

These raptors are among the baddest bitches around.

Rabbits, squirrels, pigeons and various waterfowl are just calories with a heartbeat to the goshawk, who lean on these species as staples in their diet.

They’ll also take time out of their busy schedules to hunt down and eliminate their competition, which includes barn owls, but buzzards and falcons are also targeted.

What I find really cool about goshawks is that they are known for occasional hunting on foot, as opposed to swooping in on their prey from above every single time.

Even in dense brush, goshawks are capable of making a kill from the ground, which in my opinion makes them one of the coolest raptors there are.
