Accipiter Field Trip

July 31, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

accipitersAccipiters are forest dwelling hawks with long tails that allow them to easily maneuver through tight spaces.  The 3 North American accipiters are Sharp-shinned Hawk, Cooper’s Hawk, and Northern Goshawk.   Join us at Alta Ski Resort for a short presentation on accipiters to learn more about these specialized hawks, followed by a hawk watch stroll through the Albion Meadows Trail area to find some accipiters in their habitat.

What to bring

Bring your hiking shoes and an extra layer for cold weather. Bring plenty of water and your binoculars.  Trail snacks will be provided.


This is a free event but registration through HawkWatch is required.  You will need to sign a liability waiver at the presentation. Questions? You can contact Nelson Holmes via email or call 801-484-6808 x101.
