It's time to REGISTER for the final RAPTORS REVEALED program, “Chasing Broad-wingeds from Pennsylvania to Peru: Broad-winged Hawk Migration”
You'll want to see this one too! It's this Thursday, April 29, at 4 pm EDT via secure Zoom
You are invited to join MSRW for the third and final program of the MSRW's Raptors Revealed speaker series to learn about Broad-winged Hawk migration ecology. This research is relevant to Michigan as well as Pennsylvania where the study was undertaken. It also shows the type of information we might expect to learn from the new MSRW study of putting backpack transmitters on Red-tailed Hawks.
From 2014 through 2020 Hawk Mountain Sanctuary on Kittatinny Ridge in central Pennsylvania followed 16 Broad-winged Hawks during nesting, migration, and wintering periods using satellite tracking. Because Broad-winged Hawks have declined in some parts of their range, the study focused on understanding basic biology as well as possible conservation threats. In this talk you will learn about Broad-winged Hawk migration ecology and habitat use throughout the year. You will see data on the length of migration, departure dates, and migration speeds, comparing patterns between adults and young birds. Presenter Laurie J. Goodrich, Ph.D. is the Director of Conservation Science at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in Orwigsburg, PA. She serves on the Hawk Migration Association of North America Board of Directors and as a Fellow in the American Ornithological Society. Her favorite place to be in all the world is watching hawks at Hawk Mountain’s North Lookout.
