So when I started the new job awhile ago, I upgraded my binoculars to these beautiful things! I was getting razzed by people that are very "confident " birders and my Luepolds were getting very field weathered, so I invested. They suit me quite well haha. ❤ #swarovski #swarovskioptics #fieldlife #fieldbiologist #fieldbiology #fieldwork #wildlifebiologist #alwaysbirds #raptors #raptorbiology #fieldgear #lovethem #oktheywereright #holygrailofbinoculars #gearnerd #superclearsharpimage #birdwork #birds #birding #birdinggear #nowineedanewspottingscope #wishful

A little easy forced visual retrieve exercise with various size/texture/weight training + ecollar recall conditioning + mental strength/control in the park with dad on a perfect Sunday❗️

Scout has turned into a bird dog this past week and it has been so fun to watch his progression and see the “light bulb” go off!

Each fall, hundreds of thousands of raptors migrate from as far north as the Arctic to as far south as Argentina. Crews of "hawkwatchers" across the continent spend months in challenging conditions ranging from blistering hot to freezing cold to count these birds as they power themselves hundreds of kilometers each day.
.
Raptors are counted from what are know as "hawkwatch count sites", known locations that facilitate efficient movement due to topography (coastlines or ridges) or the tendency for thermal updrafts.
.
The utility of counting hawks is not in the numbers collected over a single season, rather how those numbers fluctuate from season to season over time for a given species. Long term trend data provide baseline information that can be used by researchers (governmental, academic, non-profit, etc.) as the basis for in depth research that focuses on specific aspects of an individual species.
.
Put simply, raptors are a barometer for the ecosystem. Thus, if they are trending downward, chances are we're seeing just the tip of the iceberg.
.
Filmmakers @charles_post, @max.lowe, and @forestwoodward visited 2 of our count sites and experienced first hand the raptor migration as they followed the birds south from the #goshutesmtnhawkwatch in Nevada to the #manzanomtnhawkwatch in New Mexico. Their film #skymigrations documents the experience and provides a glimpse into what the lives of our hard working #hawkwatch crewmembers are like each fall.
.
The best part about this story is that you can experience raptor migration yourself! Use Google to find the nearest count site or browse hawkcount.org to see if there are any sites in your state.
.
We hope the film inspires you to get outside, witness raptor migration for yourself, and spread the good word about raptor conservation and education!

Good dogs + great weather + great habitat makes for a fantastic day in the uplands! #couldbecolderthough #birdwork #drahthaaraddiction #upland #browning #birddog #sharptail #idaho #utahbirddogs #idahobirddogs #doglife

Great end to the Wyoming sage grouse season for us yesterday, seeing great things from the dogs so far and hoping for a great season as it progresses! Lower bird numbers across the board but with the pack we got we should be able to huge miles and find the birds! #onlythebeginning #birdwork #sagegrousehunting #drahthaaraddiction #upland #28guage #toohot #drahthaar
