Welcome to the homepage of the Raptor Inventory Nest Survey

The Organization

RINS offers a unique opportunity for volunteers to become involved as “citizen scientists“ in a long-term nest monitoring project. The RINS organization collects and manages data regarding the nesting ecology of five species of birds of prey or raptors that inhabit Utah: Eagles, falcons, hawks, osprey and owls.

Our Mission

“RINS is an all-volunteer organization concerned with birds of prey that nest throughout Utah. Our organization focuses on ensuring the success of nesting raptors and habitat protection.”
