January 20th Activity: Ramona Hawk Watch

On January 20 we visit a Hawk Watch Event of the Wildlife Research Institute. The Hawk Watch is held every Saturday in January and February – you can go any Saturday, but our club will meet as a group on Saturday, January 20th.

This is a fantastic opportunity to get up close with beautiful birds even when you do not have a long telephoto lens – the birds sitting on perches or with their handlers will make it possible to get much, much closer than you normally would in the wild. Nevertheless, please be extremely respectful to both people and animals.
