Raptor

Raptors like this rough-legged hawk may show up for a guided presentation in Yellowstone National Park.

DAVID ERICKSON

Celebrate the spectacle of raptor migration on Saturday, Sept. 23, in Yellowstone National Park’s Hayden Valley. The Hawk Watch is an opportunity to observe and learn about raptors, their ecology and their migration.

Park staff will present raptor identification tips at the Fishing Bridge Visitor Center at 9 a.m. Afterward, travel north to Hayden Valley to look for the raptors that fly through Yellowstone each fall.

Park rangers will observe raptors with visitors at a road pull out in Hayden Valley from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Meet park rangers at the turnout located nine miles north of Fishing Bridge Junction and 6.6 miles south of Canyon Junction. Look for signs, spotting scopes, and uniformed rangers at the program location. Visitors may want to bring a lawn chair, water, snacks and binoculars.

Both programs are free. For more information call Katy Duffy at 307-699-2696.
