    Breeding Success of the goshawk (A.g. Laingi) on Haida Gwaii/Queen Charlotte Islands 2008
Project lead: Doyle, Frank (Wildlife Dynamics Consulting)
Subject: Forest Investment Account (FIA), British Columbia
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program - Innovative
This was thirteenth year of goshawk inventory and research, and the night year of systematic goshawk nest monitoring on Haida Gwaii. Nest monitoring included several visits to each known nest area. If no birds were initially located, goshawk playback surveys were conducted throughout the nest area, and in adjacent areas of suitable habitat to establish if the birds were present and possibly using an alternate nest.
In addition, systematic goshawk breeding surveys were also conducted in 21 separate landscapes, which were selected for surveys based on previous goshawk sightings, predicted specing of territories, and the presence of active harvesting within areas of suitable nesting habitat.
