Volunteers Needed! for Winter Raptor Route Surveys

Winter raptor surveys began in November 2004, with a total of 79 routes, all in Oregon. Last season, 500+ raptor routes were run in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and in small portions of north central California, NE Utah, and SW Montana.
Surveys are conducted by volunteers who drive a designated route once a month in December, January, and February, and optionally in November and March, recording each raptor seen. Each month data collected are compiled into a monthly summary chart and distributed to survey volunteers.
At the end of the season, project leader, Jeff Fleischer, collects and compiles the data from all routes. The Peregrine Fund, based at the World Center for Birds of Prey in Boise, houses all the data for the 15,000+ raptor routes run by this program over the years.
