In a single day, hundreds and sometimes thousands of raptors and other birds may pass Derby Hill Bird Observatory on their way north along the shore of Lake Ontario. Join Naturalist and former Derby Hill Hawk Counter Anna Stunkel to learn about these birds’ journeys, get an insider’s perspective on how and why this research is conducted, and learn some observation tips for watching raptors on the move.
More details: Meet at Baltimore Woods at 8:50 am to carpool, or meet the group at 10 am at Derby Hill. Dress warmly and bring binoculars. This program will be held at the North Lookout, which is at the top of the hill on Grandview Avenue. Watch for signs directing you towards parking; if it is very muddy, we may need to park at the bottom of the hill and go for a brief hike to the top.
Pre-registration is required and due to limited capacities associated with the pandemic, walk-ins cannot be accommodated. At Baltimore Woods Nature Center, the health and safety of our staff and visitors is of utmost importance. All in-person programming will follow best practices for keeping our participants safe, including physical distancing and wearing facial coverings.
This program is for adults.
