The 2017 migration monitoring has begun! Hawkwatch volunteers will be counting from Hawk Hill daily, even weekends and holidays, from 9:30-3:30 (unless foggy or rainy). Follow along from home by reading the Daily Hawk Count blog!

For over 30 years, the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory (GGRO) has been a program of the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy in cooperation with the National Park Service.

The GGRO’s mission is to inspire the preservation of California raptor populations. The GGRO was formed in the early 1980s to track the Golden Gate migration, an annual flight of tens of thousands of hawks, eagles, falcons, and vultures, birds collectively called “raptors.”
