~ Established in 1934 by Rosalie Edge, Hawk Mountain was the world's first refuge for raptors.
~ Between August 15 and December 15, an average of 18,000 hawks, eagles and falcons, representing 1 6 species, fly past the Sanctuary's Northern Lookout. Last year, the Sanctuary recorded a record 171 bald eagles; its highest number ever. Hawk Mountain also boasts the largest hawk migration count in North America.
~ The Sanctuary offers an internship program, bringing five interns each fall and five each spring to help conduct mon-itoring, research and education; about half of the interns are international.
