Hawks & Hawk Watching

Thursday, July 18, 6:00—7:30 PM, Meeting Room

Hawks & Hawk Watching

Join us as we welcome back Dr. Steve Hale from Open World Explorers for another birding presentation! Earlier this year, he discussed the bizarre birds of the world. Now, he will discuss Hawks & Hawk Watching.

This presentation of the region’s vultures, hawks, eagles, and falcons that can be regularly observed on Fall migration. High quality images of each species in flight, as they might appear passing by or overhead at a favorite hawk watch location are provided. Technical tips on species shape, coloration, and behavior are provided to boost your own ability to ID these fabulous birds. Migration-timing data for some regional sites will be presented for different species so you can know when to expect certain species. An introduction to some regional hawk watch sites is given along with information on how to participate.
