Project Description

The goal of this project is to improve the understanding of the current status, population size, and demographics of riparian raptors along the San Pedro River in Arizona and the habitats upon which they depend. We will examine the habitat needs of these species in order to assess their value as indicators of riparian health. Additionally, the information gathered during the project can be used as baseline data for continued monitoring of Gray Hawk, Common Black-Hawk, Mississippi Kite, and Zone-Tailed Hawk populations and riparian vegetation in Arizona.
