VIA ZOOM (CLASS NOT RECORDED)

Registration closes at 8:00 am the morning of the class. Be sure and reserve your spot!

INSTRUCTOR:
LAURA WHITTEMORE

Meet the many diurnal (active by day) birds of prey found west of the Cascades at this time of year. From the ubiquitous Red-tailed Hawk to the frustratingly similar Cooper’s and Sharp-shinned Hawks, you’ll get ID tips, natural history facts, and resources for further study of these amazing birds.

The presentation will include:
-The major differences between eagles, hawks, and falcons
-How to spot raptors and ID them by shape and size
-Habitat and prey preferences
-Information about not only year-round residents like the Red-tailed Hawk but winter visitors like the Rough-legged Hawk and Merlin
-Tips on where to go raptor watching in winter in the Pacific Northwest

This is a great opportunity to learn about and draw closer to the birds of prey that soar the skies of Washington and Oregon.

TUITION: $5 – $15 SLIDING SCALE

The link to the Zoom meeting will be sent out to attendees before the workshop time.
