Plucking analysis is a standard method for assessing the breeding season diet of goshawks Accipiter gentilis .R esults may be biased, however, due to differences in the detectability of remains of certain prey species and to selective prey transportation by hawks. This study investigated prey choice of three goshawk breeding pairs in the city of Hamburg, Germany, during 1997–99. Predation data obtained by continuous radio-monitoring of the adult males were used to quantify biases of… Expand
