Goshawks 2012

Northern Goshawk

Niigata, Japan,

My first visit back in May 2012


Lucky to find Northern Goshawks nesting again this year although they are in a quiet area and have been nervous of onlookers. I visited briefly just three times over the last 6 weeks. I visited today just for 15 minutes and found the two that had recently fledged.

Adult seen on my second visit two weeks ago.

Newly fledged bird seen today, July 1, 2012.






This is the second fledgling
