View migrating raptors on Sept. 20
OREM — A chance to view and learn more about migrating falcons of prey will be available Sept. 20, during Utah's annual Raptor Watch Day.
Viewing will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Orem Overlook along Squaw Peak Road, east of Orem. Squaw Peak Road is accessed via the Provo Canyon Road. To reach 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 just begin to flirt with the eye, temperatures at higher elevation watch sites will 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 migration to the south," says Bob Walters, Watchable Wildlife coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources.
"Experts will be available to help people identify passing falcons of prey and to answer any questions they have about raptor migration," Walters says. "This year's Raptor Watch Day may be one of the better opportunities to take a few hours, or a day, to spend relaxing and watching raptors."
For more information, call Walters at (801) 538-4771.
