About the Site

Sitting at 9,000 feet in northeastern Nevada, the Goshute Mountains HawkWatch is a historically significant site, as it is one of the longest-running standardized migration monitoring efforts in the West. Annual counts typically range between 10,000-25,000 migrants of up to 18 species, making this one of the largest concentrations of migrating raptors in the western U.S. and Canada. Every fall since 1980, we return to this site to collect long-term data to monitor the population health and trends of raptors so that we can determine their conservation needs accurately.
