When it comes to observing raptors, such as this gorgeous Cooper’s Hawk, there are few places in the western United States better than the Idaho Bird Observatory (IBO). This non-profit research unit of Boise State University is world-renowned for the diversity of raptors and songbirds that migrate through this region in the autumn.
To understand why this area is so important for bird migration, Seasonal Wisdom spent the day at the observatory. Come along on our tour and see these amazing birds up close.
