Conservation of northern goshawks (Accipiter gentilis atricapillus) in the western Great
Lakes region (the northern forested portions of Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin and the southern
forested portions of Ontario) is hampered by a lack of population data and information about
goshawk-habitat relations. In this report, we provide a brief summary of existing information on
goshawks in the WGLR, and conclude that existing data are few and have limited applicability to
regional conservation and monitoring of the breeding goshawk population. Furthermore, we identify
important considerations in establishing monitoring protocols for goshawks, and suggest approaches
to address limitations associated with existing data.
