Raptors In Winter

November 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Instructor: Maureen Lahiff, With Anne Ardillo on Field Trips
3 sessions on Tuesdays and Saturdays
Venue: Zoom plus field trips

Year-round resident hawks, falcons, and eagles of the greater Bay Area and the Central Valley are joined  by a number of wintering migrants (including Ferruginous and Rough-legged Hawks). We’ll explore the rhythm of their lives and discuss identifying juveniles and adult birds, including birds in flight. We’ll travel to eastern Alameda and Contra Costa, and to Napa, Solano, and Sonoma counties. One of the nice things about raptors is that we don’t have to be on scene at daybreak to get good looks at these birds, so we can travel a bit further afield.
