Has anyone heard of a subspecie of Nothern Goshawk known as the Queen Charlotte Goshawk? The Fish and Wildlife Service and Forest Service claim it exists in Western Canada from Victoria north into Southeast Alaska. There is a petition that it be classified as endangered per the Endangered Species Act. I can't find any reference to such a subspecie although they claim there are numerous studies.
Could someone point me to the evidence of such a critter?
