Abstract

Dear Friend,

The future of an important raptor preserve is in doubt; your help is needed now!

One of the most magnificent places on earth to view birds of prey is located in a region of south-western Idaho, the Snake River Birds of Prey Area. I am sure many of you have visited this extraordinary place either professionally or to enjoy the splendor of this truly unique area. Each spring nearly 800 pairs of 15 species of raptors nest along 81 miles of the Snake River Canyon. Nesting species include prairie falcons, golden eagles, ferruginous hawks, northern harriers, and long-eared owls. The shurbs and grasslands of the nearby plateau are inhabited by black-tailed jackrabbits and Townsend's ground squirrels, two of the primary prey species for these raptors.
