Join Phil Brown, the Harris Center’s Bird Conservation Director, for a half day of hawk watching at the Pack Monadnock Raptor Observatory in Peterborough. We will hope for late season migration which, in mid-October, can include Golden Eagles and Northern Goshawks, large flocks of migrant Canada Geese, songbirds, and even scoters!
Learn hawk watching ID tips from the experts and learn about the different migration strategies and behaviors of up to 15 migratory raptor species. During a visit to the hawk watch, you’ll experience NH’s birding culture and immerse yourself in a long-standing community science project that is a partnership between the Harris Center and NH Audubon. Meet at the Observatory for the 10 am start time, and stay as long as you’d like. The Park usually closes by 4 pm in late October. Weather conditions may cancel.
State park reservations with Miller State Park and a small fee are required for visiting Pack Monadnock. Visit their website for more information on park fees and reservations, as well as accessibility.
Contact: Phil Brown.
Registration is limited to 15 and participants should be fully vaccinated. As the event nears, for additional details and to sign-up, visit the Seacoast Chapter website.
