Hawks, eagles and vultures begin their journey south to avoid winter as every year. However, this year the number increased dramatically with about 13,000 vultures, hawks, eagles. A lot of photographers and researchers focus on this amazing observation.

The concentration of these raptors is a condition for researchers at the Detroit International Wildlife Refuge and the International Union for Wildlife Protection to count the number of birds of prey each year.

Jerry Jourdan, a researcher at the vulture observer in Detroit, said: "Our goal is to track populations of large predator birds, trying to determine the cause of the increase or decrease in numbers."
