October 15, 2021 all-day

This is an opportunity you don’t want to miss!

Have you ever wondered how our counters can identify raptors from far distances or in large numbers? Well now is your chance to learn some tricks and tips with raptor expert, Bill Clark (co-author of Peterson Guide to Hawks & Photographic Guide to North American Raptors). We are excited to have him join us virtually this October for an Advanced Raptor ID course. This workshop is sure to help bring you up a notch in your hawkwatching skills. Bill will provide an ID skill review and then go into details on challenging raptor ID in groups (accipiters, buteos, eagles, vagrants, and unusual plumages). These classes will be followed by optional in-person field workshops on both Saturday & Sunday with Hawk Ridge staff.

The virtual portion will be held from 7-9pm Friday and 8-10am on both Saturday and Sunday with follow-up field trips (4-6 hours each day) at Hawk Ridge Nature Reserve to experience the magnificent migration (raptor count, banding, and education). Please bring a bag lunch.
