Group Description

Raptor Watch

This email list is intended to serve as a source of information and conversation about the raptors we all love to watch. We want to hear from raptor enthusiasts of all levels, from devoted scientists who have made raptors their life work to people who do volunteer raptor work to those of you who, like me, just happen to be lucky enough to have birds of prey to watch. And, of course, everyone else interested in the conservation and enjoyment of birds of prey.

I'm not a scientist. I watch peregrine falcons at Morro Rock in Morro Bay, California and maintain a web site (www.morrorockperegrines.com) that includes my observations about the peregrines during breeding season. Being unable to identify many winged critters beyond falcons, a few other hawks, and some very common birds, I don't even really qualify as a good birder. I am a casual observer.

My co-moderator on this list is Dianna Moore of Ocean Shores, Washington. She is Secretary of Grays Harbor Audubon (www.ghas.org/) and registrar of the Grays Harbor Shorebird Festival (www.ghas.org/). Since 1999 Dianna has also been a volunteer with a wildlife biologist researching raptors on the coast of Washington state.

Your sightings, stories of surprise encounters, experiences, and ongoing observations of the raptors you watch are what make these email exchanges interesting.

Join us! We can't wait to hear how your favorite raptors are doing. Please . . . no political rantings.
