Soaring Hawk Ranch - Prowers County
Ownership: Private (see directions for access)
Description: This site offers 40 acres of ungrazed sand-sage prairie in very good condition. The owners are experienced falconers with two falconry hawks available for viewing, and currently conduct a show during the Snow Goose Festival (February). This site will soon be a raptor-rehabilitation facility and education center. Donations from Birding Trail visitors will help make this a reality. A raptor-banding operation is conducted during the month of November, when visitors are welcome to view trapping from a blind.

Habitat: Grassland/Prairie
Directions: To inquire about access to this ranch and to get directions, please call 719-688-9634 a minimum of 48 hours in advance of your potential visit. Please remember that this is a working ranch as well as a private residence, and there may be times when the landowner cannot accommodate visits. While you are on the ranch, remember to stay on roads, leave gates as you find them (whether open or closed), and refrain from taking anything off the ranch or leaving trash behind.
