Eagles, Hawks & Other Birds of Prey: Identification Workshop & Hike

Rush Ranch

Join Larry Broderick and the Solano Land Trust Raptor Team for an interactive presentation covering raptor natural history and threats, the importance of habitat conservation, acquisition and restoration, identification methods, and a book review. The presentation will be held in the Rush Ranch Nature Center from 11am – 1pm.  Following a brief social break, test your new identification skills on a short but steep hike up Suisun Hill to observe eagles, falcons and hawks.
Broderick brings over 25 years of experience studying, researching, rescuing and rehabilitating birds of prey. Each fall and winter season he offers tours on Solano Land Trust lands.  He’s a gifted and entertaining teacher who gives beginning and experienced birders easy ways to identify year-round and migratory raptors. He shares useful handouts on raptor information and identification, and brochures on where to spot them.
Space is limited. See RSVP below.
