Northern Goshawk Released

For only the second time in a now-24-year career as a raptor rehabilitator, Kay and SOAR admitted a northern goshawk that was down in mid-October along the Des Moines River in Polk County, Iowa. Just like other accipiters, goshawks eat small birds. This goshawk likely collided with a window going after “lunch.”

This goshawk returned to the skies on 29 December 2022.
