What’s Happening When Hawks Vocalize?
Welcome to the first week of Hawk Talk Data Exploration! Let's dig into the data you collected to see what we can find out. Today we're featuring a visualization that looks at what the hawks were doing when they were vocalizing. Click here to see the interactive version of this graph. This chart helps us begin to explore...January 16, 2020

Welcome to Data Collection for Hawk Happenings
Great work! Data collection is complete. See the most recent project updates. As of June 14th we are finished data collection. All three nestlings have left the nest and are trying their wings out for the first time. Congratulations and thank you to everyone who participated! Over 300 people recorded 12,700 observations so that we can answer the question...May 13, 2020
We Have Less Than Two Weeks Left!
Things are happening at Hawk Happenings. The first nestling may leave the nest as early as next week! That means we don’t have much longer to collect data. As of yesterday, over 100 people have made over 1,600 observations. That’s incredible! Thank you to everyone who has participated Have you had the chance to collect data? If not,...June 4, 2020
We Did It!

The Data Tools
When we watch the cams, we can come up with all kinds of questions once our curiosity is piqued. Taking note of interesting patterns is how scientific investigations start. Once we have questions in hand, the next step is to determine how feasible it would be to investigate them based on several criteria. For each question,...April 14, 2020
