In preparation for the fall migration season, join our science staff for a brief presentation on our migration and raptor identification. Learn the importance of raptor migration and why we conduct long-term monitoring efforts. We will also go over some raptor ID tips to help you hone your skills for some hawk watching field trips. We will also have some of our Raptor Ambassadors on hand for you to get a close up look of a live bird of prey.
Check our events calendar for upcoming migration field trips, and come practice your ID skills with us!
This presentation will be held at our HWI Office and is open to the public, free of charge. Bring your curiosity and questions!
The 19th annual Celebration of Flight at the Hazel Bazemore County Park will take place September 22-24, 2017, and will coincide with International Hawk Migration Week.
This festival is a celebration of raptor migration at the Corpus Christi HawkWatch. This is a family-friendly event with free activities in the park that coincide with peak Broad-winged Hawk migration in September. Thanks to our partners Swarovski Optik, Audubon Outdoor Club of Corpus Christi, and the many volunteers who make this festival possible.
Join HawkWatch International and Bridgerland Audubon Society for a hike up to the crest of the Wellsville Mountains to witness one of the wonders of the avian world. Thousands of raptors migrate along the Wellsvilles during the fall migration season. On a good day, we’ll see more than 100 raptors of a number of different species.
Warning: this is a strenuou hike. We’ll hike up Deep Canyon and plan to eat lunch while watching raptors drift by. The trail gains three thousand feet in approximately four miles, so be prepared and be sure to wear appropriate footwear. Bring plenty of water. Since it is usually cool and windy up on top, a change of layers, a warm sweater, and a good wind shell make the experience more comfortable. Bring binoculars, lunch, and water.
Meet at 8 am at Caffe Ibis in downtown Logan (meet in the parking lot between Caffe Ibis and the Logan fire station at 50 E 150 N); from there we will carpool or caravan to the Deep Canyon trailhead. We will be birding into the mid-afternoon, and late-comers are welcome to meet us at the ridgeline - just hike up the Deep Canyon trailhead to the summit of the Wellsville Ridge and then follow the ridge about a quarter mile to the north.
Please make sure to use the registration buttons below and register so we can communicate with you via email on weather conditions and potential changes.

You will learn about raptors, their role in the ecosystem, and how to ID them. You will also spend time in the field observing migrating raptors.
