If you are an experienced birder and want to put your skills to work, this volunteer position is for you!! During the autumn months, the lower Detroit River becomes a corridor for the passage of migratory birds, and has gained international recognition for the annual volume of birds of prey. Hundreds of thousands of migrating hawks, eagles, falcons, and vultures are concentrated at this location where it is possible to systematically count them each year. Detroit River Hawk Watch utilizes trained volunteers to conduct a standardized count of the fall migration of raptors at the lower Detroit River. A minimum time commitment of at least once per week (8-10 hours per week) is required September 1 - October 30, each year. Prospective volunteers must be highly motivated to learn field identification of distant migratory birds of prey.
