Step Wilson began working with raptors as a volunteer bander at the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory in 1995. After seven autumns, he moved to Colorado and worked alongside Sigrid Ueblacker at Birds of Prey Foundation and monitored raptor breeding, migration, and wintering sites throughout the Rocky Mountains and Great Lakes. He has studied raptors through counting and banding efforts in Mexico, Canada, Italy, Israel, and South Africa. He has been collaborating with our research team for the past 13 years on a variety of raptor and raven projects. Step’s main interests are raptor conservation and public education.
