Hawk Watch from the Summit House
September 14 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
As the summer season shifts to autumn, a great migration gets underway as birds large and small take to the skies for warmer climates.
Join Dave King, U.S. Forest Service Wildlife Biologist, and Dan Ziomek, host of the long-running show “Bird Songs” on 93.9 The River, for this year’s Hawk Watch from the summit of Mount Holyoke on Saturday, September 14th.
Dave and Dan will provide an introduction to the hawks and other raptors that we see in our region, and talk about how to identify them. You’ll learn about the ecology of hawks from nesting to migration, as well as conservation efforts that aim to support hawks and other bird species, including the American kestrel.
If weather conditions are favorable for flying, we may see a variety of hawks, falcons, and vultures soaring past. Binoculars or a scope are strongly recommended.
This event is co-organized by Kestrel Land Trust and Hitchcock Center for the Environment.
