Seasonal Science: Raptor Migration

45 percent of all raptors migrate, but they don't follow the paths of other migrating birds. An extensive Seasonal Science series introduces the unique migration process of raptors. The narrator explains the extremely small migration window, the reason for the unusual paths, and the changes in social behavior during the migration period.
