    The Goshawk by Robert Kenward

    Hardbound, 358 pages.

    The Northern Goshawk is a large and spectacular bird of prey that lives in boreal forests throughout the Holarctic region. This powerful hunter of large birds and woodland mammals has been persecuted for many years, to the point of extinction in the United Kingdom. However, a new population became established in the 1960s, mainly through falconry escapes, but the species remains rare and elusive in this country. Fortunately, the species is still fairly common in much of Europe and Asia, and is a flagship species for forest preservation in North America.
    The Goshawk is an authoritative yet highly readable monograph of the species. It includes chapters on nomenclature, races and morphs, biometrics, nesting, incubation and chick-rearing, migration, feeding ecology, population dynamics, and conservation, punctuated throughout with illuminating tales from author Robert Kenward's extensive field research. The book is packed with illustrations, figures and maps, and contains a selection of the author's superb photographs of the birds.
