Raptors in Winter

Instructor: Maureen Lahiff
Raptors in Winter, 3 Zoom presentations, Thursdays Feb 4, 11, and 25, 7 to 9 pm, with detailed suggestions for individual field observations.
Year-round resident hawks, falcons, and eagles of the greater Bay Area and the Central Valley are joined by a number of wintering migrants (including Ferruginous and Rough-legged Hawks). We will explore the rhythm of their lives and discuss identifying juveniles and adult birds, including birds in flight. This class focuses on raptors that are diurnal (active during the day).
One of the nice things about raptors is that you don’t have to be on scene at daybreak to get good looks at these birds, so you can travel a bit further afield. It is rewarding to travel to eastern Alameda and Contra Costa, and Napa, Solano and Sonoma counties to look for diurnal raptors.
