Each fall, thousands of migrating raptors close by the crest of Capilla Peak in the Manzano Mountains south of Albuquerque. The rugged, west-facing canyons of the Manzanos are especially spectacular when aspens and scrub oak blaze with seasonal color. Learn about HawkWatch International and their monitoring of the migration of raptors along the mountain ridges of the Manzanos. Migrating raptors can best be seen at this site from September 10 - October 20, where it is not uncommon to see up to 150 raptors on a good day, weather permitting.
