Raptor Watch: See Eagles, Other Birds

(Utah’s Division of Wildlife Resources provided this news release.)

View Migrating Birds of Prey

Orem -- You can view and learn more about eagles, hawks and other
migrating birds of prey on Sept. 30, during Utah's annual Raptor Watch
Day.

Viewing on Sept. 30 will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Orem
Overlook along Squaw Peak Road, east of Orem. Squaw Peak Road can be
reached from the Provo Canyon Road. To reach the Provo Canyon Road,
exit I-15 at Exit 275 and travel eastbound on 800 N. in Orem.

Raptor Watch Day is hosted annually by the Division of Wildlife
Resources
.

"Fall colors will flirt with the eye, the temperature at our high
elevation watch site should be crisp and, with any luck, clear skies
will offer up-close glimpses of harriers, vultures, eagles, hawks and
falcons as they continue their annual fall migration to the south,"
says Bob Walters, Watchable Wildlife coordinator for the DWR.

"Experts will be available to help people identify passing birds of
prey and to answer any questions they might have about raptor
migration," Walters says. "This year's Raptor Watch Day should be
one of the best opportunities of the year to spend some time relaxing
and watching raptors."

For more information, call Walters at (801) 538-4771.
