Wintering Raptors of the Great Basin – Census and Banding Study 1985-2011

Principal Investigator(s):

Alan Hinde

Institution:

HawkWatch International, Inc., Salt Lake City, UT

Project Term:

2010 - 2011

Since 1985, Principal Investigator (PI) Al Hinde has conducted a roadside census and banding study of wintering raptors in the Great Basin. Initially, this project was limited to northeastern Nevada and was intended to augment knowledge of regional raptor ecology derived from HawkWatch International’s (HWI) long-term migration study in the Goshute Mountains of northeastern Nevada (on-going annually since 1983; Hoffman and Smith 2003; Smith and Neal 2008a). By 1989, further exploration throughout Utah and Nevada had revealed eight major concentration areas for wintering raptors. This report summarizes the results of winter 2010/2011 roadside census and banding activities conducted in seven of the nine primary, known concentration areas in Utah and Nevada, with supplementary information derived from three other areas in the two states.
