About This Project

The initial phase of our project involves investigating the large groups of caracaras that winter in central Arizona. We will tag individual caracaras with solar-powered GPS transmitters then track them throughout the year to discover where they go in the summer months, and hopefully, their nesting sites. Thank you to all our donors so far! Additional funding will be used to conduct genetic analyses as we begin to unravel the evolutionary history of this species in North America.

Blast off!
