Article summary

A couple of Goshawk managed to rear their brood successfully in spite of two consecutive changes of nest-site : in the first place, the youngs fell to the ground when the tree harbouring the nest was felled; then, three weeks later, they were installed in an artificial eyrie made in a neighbouring tree. The success of this disturbed nidification may be considered as an exceptional case, as one only has to recall the failures usually resulting from forest tree-felling.
