Hawk Watching

September 1, 2023 @ 8:00 am - September 30, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

Eagle Ridge (the geologists call it Emigrant Gap Anticline) is a good raptor flyway, but the hawks don’t fly down it all the time.  Last year I had 8 raptor species on September 22, but only 2 on the following Saturday and none a few days after that.  I suspect that the weather, primarily the strength of the southwest wind, has a huge effect on the number of hawks using the flyway, but I haven’t been out there enough to know how, or if, you can predict whether it is good hawk flying weather.  I am going to try to spend more days on the ridge this September, and anyone is welcome to join me.  Give me, Stacey Scott, a call at 307-262-0055 if you are interested.
