WASHINGTON, CT Southern Connecticut State University professor Dwight Smith has been studying hawks and owls in Connecticut to see if they are becoming more numerous in suburban areas. His work suggests that many raptors are adapting to human presence and are more numerous in the state. One such bird is the Northern Goshawk, which Smith has been monitoring in the Steep Rock Reservation where they nest. Goshawks were once extremely rare nesters in Connecticut, but now are increasingly more common.
