GLLT Presents: The Gentle Hawk with Bonny Boatman

Did you know that the Northern Goshawk is such a fierce hunter who stalks prey on foot and in the air? And yet, its scientific name, Accipiter gentilis, means the gentle hawk. Interestingly, the name derives from Accipiter (accipere: to grasp) meaning hawk, and gentilis meaning noble or gentle. Together, they refer to the Middle Ages when only nobility were permitted to own goshawks for falconry. Join us to see and hear about the many wonders of the remarkable and canny bird.
