Nighthawk Watch Volunteer Training

June 3, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm EDT

It’s nearly time for the first Common Nighthawks to return. These insect-eating birds were once common in cities throughout New Hampshire, but they are now endangered in the state. Volunteers have been helping NH Audubon and the Harris Center track nesting nighthawks since 2007, primarily in Concord, Keene, and the Ossipee pine barrens. Volunteers watch at specific sites from 8:00 – 9:30 pm recording any nighthawk activity. If you are interested in volunteering, there will be an online training on June 3 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. via Zoom. We will provide an introduction to nighthawk identification and instructions for nighthawk watching. Closed captioning will be available. To get the login details, please register here. Contact Becky Suomala ([email protected]) if you have questions regarding volunteering.
