More About This show

Attila the Hun wore its image on his helmet. The South Korean Air Force has adopted its brazen hatchlings as its mascot. The Goshawk is a national treasure that reigns over the mountains of Korea. Speeding through woodlands, its four-foot wingspan, long tail, razor-sharp talons and extraordinary eyesight allows it to ambush its prey with precision.
