This exciting 3-day raptor workshop includes both classroom instruction and field identification learning with raptor expert Bill Clark.

The course is open to all levels of birders, includes lots of time in the field and informative short classroom sessions, and will cover the basic field marks for the identification of migratory birds of prey seen at the Corpus Christi HawkWatch. The workshop will start with two hours of classroom instruction on Friday evening, starting at 7 PM. Saturday and Sunday mornings start with another two hours of lecture, then the rest of the day in the field, with a break for lunch. The class will be kept to a small size for an intimate setting with Bill--register today before it fills!

The Corpus Christi HawkWatch boasts the largest total raptor migration count in North America, including large numbers of Broad-winged Hawks and Mississippi Kites.

The workshop will take place September 28-30, coinciding with peak hawk migration and the annual Celebration of Flight festival that includes live raptor exhibits.
