Long-term Monitoring & Counts

Raptors and Other Wildlife

Bald Eagle by Bill Moses

Sanctuary personnel record and maintain counts of migrating raptors each autumn and each spring, and also study ovenbird breeding success, survey nesting songbirds, winter birds and butterflies. In addition, staff, volunteers, and visitors play an important role by sharing their wildlife observations, which we record as Nature Notes. All sightings are entered into a database that shows trends over time.

If you photographed or witnessed a great wildlife sighting during your visit to Hawk Mountain, email us today.
