The Bridger flyway, a component of the regional Rocky Mountain Flyway, is the largest known concentration of migratory Golden Eagles in the U.S with a long-term average annual count of more than 1,500 birds. It also attracts many other migrating raptors, with 18 species recorded since HawkWatch International (HWI) began monitoring the flight in 1991. Overall, combined-species counts typically range between 2,000 and 3,500 migrants per fall season.
