G'day everyone,


Are Goshawks a type of Hawk, or is a Hawk different from a Goshawk? A friend
forwarded this wiki link to me
showing that Goshawks and Hawks are together in the Genus Accipter . 

Now I don't know anything about how the classification of birds works, so
does that mean that all birds that are in Accipter are essentially Hawks
even though it may be called a Goshawk, or Sparrowhawk etc?
