BIRDS OF PREY ONLINE BIRDING CLASS
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5, 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM PACIFIC TIME
VIA ZOOM (CLASS NOT RECORDED)
Registration closes at 8:00 am the morning of the class. Be sure and reserve your spot!
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
