More breeding places of goshawk, the national bird of the DPRK, have been recently found in the country.

Kim Kyong Jun, vice-director of the Zoology Research Institute under the State Academy of Sciences, said:

More than 100 goshawk breeding places have been found through the survey of sanctuaries across the country from May last year till mid-March this year.

Goshawks had been known so far to live mainly in the northern parts of the country.

Through the survey we found a female goshawk sitting on eggs, young goshawks, nests and a pair of goshawks at the Yangamsan Sanctuary in Kangwon Province and the Hakbongsan Sanctuary in North Hwanghae Province. The facts show that the goshawk lives in the whole area of the country in all seasons.

We also observed goshawk nests on tall trees like pine and larch at the Ogasan Nature Reserve and the Phothaesan Sanctuary in the northern parts of the country and confirmed once again that the environment in sanctuaries changed more favourably for the breeding of goshawks and their numbers increase rapidly.

In particular, we found tens of goshawk nests, including a nest with five eggs to the maximum, at the Toksong Goshawk Reserve set in Toksong County of South Hamgyong Province in 2015. This goes to prove that the area is a favourable breeding place for goshawk.

The institute is planning to further deepen the research into feeding activity, distribution sphere, breeding and ecological characters of goshawk.
