Join NH Audubon raptor biologist Chris Martin for a discussion about NH’s state-endangered Northern Harrier. Sometimes called a marsh hawk, this magnificent raptor hovers and glides low over fields and marshes while hunting voles, snakes, and frogs. Harriers use hearing along with sight to find their prey. Their low buoyant flight, upswept wings, and white rump patch are all very distinctive. NH Audubon is collaborating with NH Fish & Game to locate harrier breeding areas and document nesting outcomes; learn about discoveries made in 2020 and find out how you might help us with fieldwork in 2021!
Registration is required, and closes at 5pm on Nov 12. You will receive a confirmation email after registering, and an email with log-in information and a link to the Zoom session will be send the evening of Nov 12, just prior to the start of Chris’s talk.
Proceeds support NH Audubon’s programs, including Harrier research.
The New Hampshire Audubon offers multiple opportunities for those interested in joining us as a member or donating for one of our various causes.
Founded in 1914, NH Audubon’s mission is to protect New Hampshire’s natural environment for wildlife and for people. It is an independent statewide membership organization with four nature centers throughout the state. Expert educators give programs to children, families, and adults at centers and in schools. Staff biologists and volunteers conduct bird conservation efforts such as the Peregrine Falcon restoration. NH Audubon protects thousands of acres of wildlife habitat and is a voice for sound public policy on environmental issues.
