LECTURE ON HAWK WATCHING Plum Island is one of the most significant spring hawk watching sites on the east coast. Unlike during fall migration, when hawks fly high along ridges from thermal to thermal, we see hundreds of hawks flying north along the coast, often less than 20 feet above the ground! During the lecture, learn how to identify hawks and discuss the similarities and differences in species composition and flight strategies. Following is a free field trip to Plum Island, where we’ll observe and put into practice our hawk identification skills.
