On Sunday, April 26th, Team Frank & Hawk Ridge Spring Counters conducted the 2020 Raptorthon to support both Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory and the Hawk Migration Association of North America’s (HMANA) efforts in raptor conservation, monitoring and research programs.

965 raptors of 13 species were counted, including a dark morph Swainson’s Hawk! You can view the species totals HERE. A big thanks to Frank & John (pictured here) and to all our wonderful Hawk Ridge friends that have contributed. There’s still time to donate and show your support by clicking HERE! Results of the Raptorthon are also published each year in the Hawk Migration Studies Journal via HMANA. THANK YOU!
