Raptor Identification Basics with Dave Oleyar

Raptor Identification Basics with Dave Oleyar

Each fall, teams of volunteers set up camp along ridgelines across North America to monitor the migration of diurnal raptors. To do so, they need to have sharp identification skills that allow them to identify birds, from a distance, in flight. However, the skill isn't just for biologists and researchers. Hawkwatching is also a ton of fun once you get the hang of it!

Join Dr. Dave Oleyar, Director of Long-term Monitoring & Community Science, for a one-hour presentation on the basics of raptor identification. Dave will cover the basics of identifying a raptor in flight and then will take a few questions, as part of our five-week virtual celebration of raptor migration, 35 Years & Counting.
