In Search of the Northern Harrier: NH’s Grassland Hunter
Thursday, November 12: 7 – 8:15 PM – In Search of the Northern Harrier: NH’s Grassland Hunter
Join NH Audubon raptor biologist Chris Martin for a discussion about NH’s state-endangered Northern Harrier. Sometimes called a marsh hawk, this magnificent raptor hovers and glides low over fields and marshes while hunting voles, snakes, and frogs. Harriers use hearing along with sight to find their prey. Their low buoyant flight, upswept wings, and white rump patch are all very distinctive. NH Audubon is collaborating with NH Fish & Game to locate harrier breeding areas and document nesting outcomes; learn about discoveries made in 2020 and find out how you might help us with fieldwork in 2021!
Cost: $15/person. (Proceeds support NH Audubon's programs, including Harrier research.)
Registration is required, and closes at 5pm on Nov 12. You will receive a confirmation email after registering, and an email with log-in information and a link to the Zoom session will be send the evening of Nov 12, just prior to the start of Chris's talk.
