Raptor Field Course
November 9 - November 12
Raptors…four days of all things raptors! The goal of this workshop is to help you build confidence in your
raptor field techniques and see first-hand how biologists study raptors. Learn new methods or hone existing
skills at world-renowned Hawk Mountain Sanctuary either during the breeding season research of the
American kestrel and broad-winged hawk or the spectacular Fall migration. Throughout the course you will
receive hands-on learning experiences including training in raptor identification, trapping methods,
exposure to handling and banding, proper measurement techniques, blood sampling, surveys, telemetry,
and more. Students will participate in real research projects with individual interaction and training
opportunities. No experience necessary, some intermediate hiking on uneven terrain involved.
