Dastardly Goshawk Tricks

A tip of my hat to The Roaming Naturalist, who posted this fabulous video earlier in the month. You might watch it just to admire the way the host says "dastardly," but you'll stick around to see how the northern goshawk manages her incredible maneuvers.


  1. That is uh-maze-ing! I hadn't thought about what it takes to dart and dive through the trees like that. And her brain is about the size of a hazlenut? Wow!!

  2. Crazy. At full speed it's almost as if it's teleporting from one side to the other.

  3. Oh MAN. I've been sitting here wondering how my chickadees fly straight into their nest box without slamming into the far wall. I still don't know exactly but at least I have confidence they've got it figured out.
