10/21, Sunday 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Hawk migration is underway in New England, and late October is a prime time to see raptors on their way to their wintering grounds. YCA is collaborating with the Mount Agamenticus Conservation Region to present a workshop on Sunday, October 21st, 2018 (with a rain date of Saturday, October 27th) in the Learning Lodge atop beautiful Mount Agamenticus, an excellent spot to see the Fall raptor migration.
The workshop will run from 9:00 a.m. till 11. Then we’ll eat our bag lunches and step outside and see what the winds bring in. Red-tailed Hawks, Red-shouldered Hawks, and adult accipiters will be on the move, and there will be a chance that we may see a late-season rarity like a Golden Eagle or a Rough-legged Hawk. It should be an exciting day.
The workshop leader is Katrina Fenton, a biologist and naturalist who has worked as a counter for raptor migration projects in Maine and New Hampshire. She will teach us about hawk migration and identification, as well as current ebird and hawk data.
Space is limited and advance registration is required. There is a registration fee of $20 for YCA (or Maine Audubon) members and $25 for non-members, payable at the door. Please bring lunch and snacks, as well as binoculars and a scope if you have one. Please register by signing up on this website using the “form” below. Hope you can join us.
