Hawk Migration Association of America

Hawk Mountain Sanctuary Counting for Conservation

As the first raptor migration watchsite in the world, Hawk Mountain has been monitoring migrating raptors passing by its rocky mountaintop since 1934.

The lookout also is used as a training ground for young raptor conservationists to learn about raptor migration and learn count methods and public education techniques. Each year staff, trainees, and volunteers spend more than 160 days monitoring migration during spring and fall.

In 2021, we celebrate that history of raptor conservation and monitoring with a special Raptorthon to support Hawk Mountain’s long-term monitoring efforts.
