Havik Accipiter gentilis bekoopt mogelijke ontmoeting met marters met de dood
Drentse vogels , Volume 21 - Issue 1 p. 36- 37
On 23 March a dead immature female Goshawk was found hanging in the fork of a branch of a larch at a height of 5 m. The freshly killed bird lacked the head and had biting marks in its shoulder. The site was only 8 m away from the nesting tree of a Goshawk pair, and the canopies of adjacent trees were connected. The female might have been taken whilst on the nest or roosting nearby and stored in the fork to protect it from scavengers. Surprisingly, in the same season two Goshawk young were raised by another female on the same nest.
