Interactive Raptor Tracking Map

 

Hawk Mountain and its colleagues are trapping and tagging a variety of raptors to learn about their migration ecology, range and other movements, and findings help to guide conservation. Mapping information on all birds, and in fact, on many migratory species, is available on Movebank.org, an international online database made possible through the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology. Maps of vulture movements also are viewable courtesy of the Falcon Research Group by clicking here.
