August 15th in Veracruz the worlds largest bird of prey migration begins. During last week in September and first three weeks of October it is possible to see tens of thousands of migrating birds of prey each day. Each year between 4.5 to 6 million raptors are counted, representing 15 different species. Species include, Broad-winged hawks, Swainson's hawks, Mississippi kites, Turkey Vultures, Peregrine Falcons, Red-tailed hawks, Coopers hawks, Sharp-shinned hawks, Osprey, Swallow-tailed hawks, Merlins.......
I am hooked on the migration and would love to share the experience with you. We have four tour dates this year to share the raptor migrations with you.
Good birding,
David McCauley
