The primary objective of the inventory was to find and describe goshawk nest sites/territories. The study area was located in the Boreal White Black Spruce biogeoclimatic zone west and north of Fort Nelson. We surveyed habitats in 3 different ecoprovinces and associated ecoregions: the Northern Boreal Mountains (Muskwa Ranges, Muskwa Foothills), Boreal Plains (Sikanni-Beatton Plateau), and Taiga Plains (Fort Nelson Lowlands). All forest habitats were stratified into 4 seral stages (early, mid, mature and old) and 3 cover types (deciduous dominant, coniferous dominant and mixed). Two hundred and sixty call playback stations (CS) were surveyed in the summer of 1997. Three goshawks were detected (0.77 goshawks/100 CS)...
