HawkWatch International

Count Hawks at Gunsight Mountain

at Milepost 118.8 of the Glenn Highway 

This spring, a decades-long goal will finally happen for the second year in a row!  We have always wanted to do a complete and thorough Hawk Watch for an entire season at Gunsight Mountain. 

This year, thanks to Neil Paprocki, it will become a reality once again!

 

Neil monitored our Hawk Watch site for 2 weeks in the spring of 2015.  His Hawk Watch International team returned in 2016 to count for the full season, and tallied over 3,000 migrating raptors.

That total included over 1,100 Golden Eagles and over 1,000 Harlan’s Hawks.   This year, Neil will return with two additional hawk watchers for the entire season.

 

Gunsight Mountain Hawk Watch – Golden Eagle Release

Last spring, we asked for local help for Neil because “The More Eyes on the Sky, The Better”  We will be doing that again this year, and we’ll let everyone know about the particulars when Hawkwatching season approaches.
