An aerial pageant: the fall bird migration

Listen to this story
Each fall, thousands of raptors -- hawks, eagles, and falcons -- leave their breeding grounds across North America and move to their southern wintering grounds. Most hawks are soaring birds and depend on updrafts to help them travel. For this reason, certain geographical locations are concentration spots for hawks moving north to south. Some parts of the North Country are excellent places to observe autumn migrating hawks. Todd Moe followed a couple of avid birders to the top of Azure Mountain in the northern Adirondacks.
