Join us for this enthusiastic and informative presentation about the resident, migrant and over-wintering birds of prey (“raptors”) in the Laguna de Santa Rosa and California. Larry Broderick's fascinating and visually-exciting presentation includes not only wonderful first-hand stories from the field, but also is packed with interesting information about raptor habits, identification, and suggestions of where to spot them, as well as some interesting one-of-a-kind and rare special surprises. Once you attend Larry's presentation, you have him as a resource and reference for questions and outings for years to come, as he is highly accessible through West County Hawkwatch Raptor Research's webpages and his direct contact information.
