The 2011 RPI analysis effort includes a new set of population trend analyses containing information on 26 species of diurnal raptors, grouped into four regions. This analysis forms the foundation of a new assessment of the status of migratory birds of prey in North America. Fifty-three datasets were used, each consisting of 10 to 45 years of counts contributed by migration monitoring sites to HawkCount.org.
