REGISTER NOW for the 2nd RAPTORS REVEALED program, “Hawks on the Wing.”
You want to see this! It's this Thursday, April 22, at 4 pm (Eastern Daylight Time – an inside joke for the 93 participants we had view last week's show) via secure Zoom
Raptors in flight bring a sense of wonder and sometimes struggle to birders, especially when it comes to identifying them at a distance. Field marks are not enough when birds lack color when lit from behind or far away. Using flight characteristics is the best way to identify hawks. However, books only take this method so far.
Join hawk-watcher Josh Haas as he shares the principles of flight ID and focuses on key eastern migratory raptors including commentary, photography and video clips from his movie “Hawks on the Wing.” Side-by-side photography and videography will help decipher species such as Sharp-shinned and Cooper’s Hawks as well as Bald and Golden Eagles. Josh Haas is a Michigan birder, photographer, President of Battle Creek Audubon and board Vice Chair for the Hawk Migration Association of North America. His movie "Hawks on the Wing," reference guide, information about hawk-watching, and galleries with his finest images are available at www.hawksonthewing.com. Josh’s passion started with raptors, but he birds and photographs in all seasons, often with his wife, daughter and son.
