International Hawk Migration Week

September 16, 2023 - September 25, 2023

Join watch sites throughout North America during International Hawk Migration Week (IHMW) to enjoy the annual spectacle of fall raptor migration and help raise awareness of hawks, hawk migration, and the HMANA network of sites that make Hawkcount an invaluable resource. 

This particular week in mid to late September was chosen due to the sheer number of raptors that are counted across North America. Last year, 113 sites throughout Canada, the United States and Mexico tallied over 700,000 migrating raptors during IHMW. 

Here are some ways you can celebrate!

  • Head out to your favorite hawk watch or visit a new site. 
  • Introduce a friend or young person to hawk watching.
  • Organize a HMANA membership drive or raise money for a sponsorship of your favorite site’s HawkCount page (September is fundraising month for the database!)
  • Participate in a Big Day count, attend a hawk watching festival or have a hawk watch site cookout to celebrate hawk migration!
  • Consider supporting your local hawk watch with a site membership or HMANA membership.
