Visitors Invited To Celebrate Hayden Valley Hawk Watch

Celebrate the spectacle of raptor (bird of prey) migration in Yellowstone National Park’s Hayden Valley this Sunday, September 22. Join education ranger and raptor enthusiast Katy Duffy to watch and learn about raptors, their ecology and their migration strategies.

If you would like to learn some raptor identification tips, meet Ranger Duffy at 9:00 a.m. Sept. 22 at the Fishing Bridge Visitor Center for a 45-minute presentation involving the mounted raptors on display there. Then travel to the park’s famed Hayden Valley to observe and learn about the raptors that flow through Yellowstone each fall.

For the field portion of the tour, visitors are invited to meet at 11:00 a.m. at the turnout 6.6 miles south of Canyon Junction and 9 miles north of Fishing Bridge Junction. Each end of this turnout will have a sandwich board indicating the program location. Also look for a uniformed ranger with a spotting scope.

Observation of raptors will occur from 11:00 a.m. through 2:00 p.m.

Both programs are free and open to the public. For more information, please call Katy Duffy at 307-344-2296.
