Throughout the fall and early winter, birds of prey are on the move! Hawks, Eagles, Vultures and Falcons will be flying Southbound overhead, moving to their wintering grounds. Join Stefan Martin, habitat steward as we look to the sky to identify and learn about these birds as they pass over Deer Pond Farm. Mid to late September is peak Broad-winged Hawk migration. Last year, on this very date, over 700 Broad-winged Hawks were counted at Deer Pond Farm. Though we cannot guarantee what species or the numbers that will be observed, educational information on birds of prey will be provided. Additionally, story time and activity will be available for children. Hawk Rising by Maria Gianferrari, a nonfiction book that explore behaviors of hawks will be read. An activity that demonstrates flying will follow.
