Hawk Watch

9:30 AM09:30

Hawk Watch

Though raptors soar high above Ramona and the backcountry, it’s a rare opportunity when humans come face to face with local birds of prey and masters of the sky. 

These fascinating creatures are celebrated every Saturday in January and February at Hawk Watch, hosted by the nonprofit Wildlife Research Institute, which aims to educate the public about conservation and wildlife appreciation. 

Those who attend the free event at Begent Ranch, 18528 Highland Valley Rd., are sure to enjoy a morning in the great outdoors, observing wintering and resident raptors, such as golden eagles, red-shouldered hawks and burrowing owls from a distance — and close up. 

WRI biologists are eager to share their knowledge during this special outreach event. Visitors are encouraged to bring binoculars, and spotting scopes will also be available. 

Programs begin at 10 a.m., with a recommended arrival time of 9:30 a.m. Refreshments will be provided. Visit www.wildlife-research.org

As a special treat, several trained raptors will be on-site for demonstrations — offering a unique chance to see these birds of prey up close.  

Hawk Watch offers an opportunity to appreciate the inhabitants of our environment, many of which soar 
with feathered fervor in Ramona’s big, blue skies.
