- Raptor Monitoring Update for May to June 2019
(posted: Jun 19, 2019)
The breeding raptor season is in full swing at Pinnacles National Park, with many species finishing up their nesting efforts. Here is an update on raptor activity through May and June.
2004 Closures Update
posted: April 15, 2004
The following information comes straight from the Park Service:
Prairie falcons are incubating their eggs now, and raptor advisories have been updated. Things look a little different from last year. Advisories on all Gargoyle areas and Generation Gap Pinnacle areas are now lifted.
There are active nests at the Frog/Hand and Teapot Dome though, so those areas are now going to be under advisory for the rest of the season. We had stopped listing the frog and hand because there hadn't been any activity there for a while, but it looks like it's back in favor, so look for it on lists in the future. Sorry to add new areas - usually we only lift advisories in April.
More information to come later.
