Hawk Watch, put on annually by Wildlife Research Institute on Saturdays in January and February, ends its 2013 season on Feb. 23.

The all-ages education program at the Ramona Grasslands attracts hundreds each week. The free event offers close-up views of such raptors as the red-shouldered hawk, red-tailed hawk, ferruginous hawk, peregrine falcon, American kestrel and barn owl. A special feature this year has been the two bald eagles who are nesting in the grasslands.
