Accipiter Field Trip at Alta

Accipiter Field Trip at Alta
Accipiters are forest dwelling hawks with long tails that allow them to easily maneuver through tight spaces.  The 3 North American accipiters are Sharp-shinned Hawk, Cooper's Hawk, and Northern Goshawk.   Join us at Alta Ski Resort for a short presentation on accipiters to learn more about these specialized hawks, followed by a hawk watch stroll through the Albion Meadows Trail area to find some accipiters in their habitat.
HawkWatch International is co-hosting this event with Alta Environmental Center and Friends of Alta.
