Description
Goshawks are the largest of the hawks. They are almost 2 ½ feet in length. The feathers of a goshawk are primarily brown, although the belly is pure white and some of the tail feathers are black. The sharp beak and claws are black.
Comments
Like the other birds of prey, the goshawk can be trained to serve man in captivity. It will bring 700-1200 Silver Pennies as a Trained hunter. Other types of hawks and falcons will have characteristics 1-2 less than the goshawk, will fly at speeds of 100-200 yards per minute less, and will have a value of 200-300 fewer Silver Pennies. They will otherwise be similar.
Abilities
Other than their excellent eyesight, goshawks have no special talents, skills, or magical abilities and are not tool users.
