A big thanks to hawkwatch volunteers world wide!

(excerpt from the Iowa Missouri Valley Times)
Governor Tom Vilsack presented the Volunteer Award to the Hitchcock HawkWatch last Oct. 22. Accepting the award on behalf of the HawkWatch volunteers were Clem Klaphake, Phylisha Eshelman, Chad Graeve, Sue Mattix and Jim Meyer.

November 2 of last year, an adult Red-tailed Hawk soared high above the Hitchcock Nature Center viewing deck at the Pottawattamie County Conservation park near Honey Creek. The sight of this raptor brought more excitement than those that had previously flown overhead. This raptor officially broke the 10,000 mark, a long awaited HawkWatch goal.

It is nice to see these volunteers get the recognition that they deserve. Thanks to these dedicated volunteers, they have aided ornithologists and field biologist across North America by providing valueable information regarding raptor migrations.
