Every year thousands of raptors migrate north along the Rio Grande flyway through Doña Ana County. Join expert birder Wyatt Egelhoff on a walk along the Rio Grande near Mesilla to spot migrating raptors such as Sharp-shinned Hawks, Mississippi Kites, Swainson’s Hawks, Ferruginous Hawks and Northern Harriers. Be sure to bring your binoculars! $5 fee per vehicle to enter the park. RATING: Easy. (Hike #45 in SWEC’s hiking guide.)
