It's that time of year again, the Northern Goshawks are getting active. Today, Feb 21st, I visited two different Gos territories, and both were highly active. At the first place the adult male, now nearly three years old, performed high in the sky, and at the second the adult female (the one in the image and now 7 years old) went up twice to perform her slow-rowing aerial display flight over the territory. There seems to be big individual differences between individuals, and at some nest-sites you never see the birds perform in this way.
