This majestic bird, which was once on the brink of extinction due to hunting and habitat loss, is now making a comeback thanks to conservation efforts.

The Northern Goshawk has been called “the most beautiful raptor in North America” for good reason. They are large birds with an impressive wingspan of up to six feet!

These hawks have incredible eyesight that allows them to see prey from over two miles away so they can swoop down and capture it without warning.

The Northern Goshawk may be one of the largest raptors in North America but it's surprisingly agile and swift when capturing its prey.
