The annual Fall migration of raptors and vultures in eastern North America ranks highly as one of the world's greatest natural spectacles. Raptors, by themselves, capture the interest of both the committed naturalist and the interested observer.
Prepare yourself to observe these birds during migration by joining this 45-60 minute zoom presentation on Friday, September 25th at 7pm.
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
