Bird of Prey Workshop and Hike at Rush Ranch 12/08/19
December 8 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
** PLEASE NOTE : LOCATION HAS BEEN CHANGED FROM LYNCH CANYON TO RUSH RANCH ON PREVIOUS PROMOTIONS ONLY FOR THIS DATE ***
Eagles, Hawks & Other Birds of Prey Workshop & Hike: Learn about eagles, hawks and falcons – the ways they fly, what they eat, where they hunt and rest, and why they migrate long distances or stay in one place all year. In the workshop (up to two hours), Larry Broderick covers birds of prey identification methods, natural history and threats, and the importance of habitat protection and restoration.
Participants learn how to identify differences between species, distinctions across individuals within one species, and changes over time during one individual’s life. A hike (up to 1.5 miles) after the workshop gives the group an opportunity to practice spotting eagles, falcons and hawks in the hills and above the marsh.
Registration is Recommended. Space is limited. Solano Land Trust will provide binoculars.
A chili lunch will be provided for registered participants.
