PDX Raptors is managed by the Port of Portland Wildlife Hazard Management Program. The purpose of the program is to reduce the risk of wildlife strikes at Portland International Airport (PDX). Red-tailed hawks, part of the raptor family, are one of the highest risk species at PDX. A large part of reducing the risk these birds pose to aircraft is through active capture, banding, and translocation from the airfield. An important part of this raptor translocation program is knowing where the birds end up after they are released. PDX Raptors is a way for you to help support the successful selection of release sites to lower return rates at PDX.
