The extraordinary migration of broad-winged hawks will be observed during the final weeks of September into October. Staff and volunteers at Pilot Mountain State Park will be recording and submitting annual data to the Hawk Migration Association of North America. This community science initiative helps scientists learn about raptor behavior and track the number of migrating birds from year to year.
