The goshawk catches medium-sized birds and mammals. The main prey in the Netherlands is the homing pigeon, wood pigeon, jay and rabbit. Magpies and crows are also caught. In terrain with lots of cover, the hawk hunts from a perch or in low flight in order to surprise its prey. It can develop a relatively high speed (80 km/h) over short distances. Goshawks mainly catch species that are abundant in their habitat. You can often see a goshawk diving from a high flight onto prey just like a peregrine falcon.

Hello, nice that you take a look in my shop. So my name is Gert Hilbink, living in Coevorden. I have been doing photography since I was 13, inspired by a biology teacher at the then U.L.O. school in Coevorden. Generally I mainly photograph nature but actually find everything that can fly very interesting. If you have any questions about my work, it is possible to contact me via the contact page of my website GertPhotography.nl
