The Corpus Christi Hawk Watch at Hazel Bazemore Park is a HawkWatch International (HWI) site.  Working with local partners and members, HWI puts significant time and financial resources into ensuring that the Corpus Christi Hawk Watch operates every year and in managing and reporting on the important data collected, so please help support their efforts and become a member.  Swarovski, one of the world's leading names in birding optics, joins us this year as a major watch sponsor. Thanks also to our other major sponsors, the Houston Endowment, and the Trull Foundation.
The Audubon Outdoor Club of Corpus Christi and donations made in the memories of Richard W. Waits and Kenneth L. Spiess provide local support. 
A special thanks to the Nueces County Parks and Recreation Department and their staff at Hazel Bazemore Park for providing such a magnificent place to watch hawks.
