Join the NPH Counter Coordinator Matt Mills at the ongoing Niagara Peninsula Hawkwatch where he will be demonstrating how to identify raptors in flight. We will learn field marks, flight styles and identification tips as raptors pass overhead.
Early April is an excellent migration period where a diversity of migrating raptor species can be seen in good numbers at the hawkwatch.
This is a great opportunity to get started if you've always wanted to help out with the watch but first wanted experience identifying raptors in the field. Bring binoculars if you have a pair, or come and share. Bring sunscreen and a pack lunch. Dress for the weather. Meet at the hawkwatch tower at Beamer Memorial Conservation Area, a short walk from parking at Quarry Road, Grimsby. Rain date: Sunday, April 2nd, 10-3.
