LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Hawk-Watch International has decided that Wellsville will no longer serve as one of its its observation posts.

The area has been collecting data on hawks for more than 30 years.

HawkWatch International's Caroline Goldman says the area was dropped because of budget cuts and a lack of staffing.

Bryan Dixon, a member of the Bridgerland Audobon Society, says at least three weekends during the peak season will be covered by members of the local Audobon Society. Other volunteers are being sought to keep watch over the next several weeks.

In Cache Valley, about 17 hawk species are regularly documented.
