A Northern California based, greater bay area message board focusing on North American Birds of Prey. Just a message board where we can share sightings, photos, stories, information and more... The North Bay Hawks yahoo group is an arm of West County Hawk Watch, which is a local raptor education and identification outreach group with a special interest and emphasis in helping people learn about the natural history, current threats and identification of birds of prey. W.C.H.W. was established over a decade ago involving citizen scientists specializing in raptor identification, photography, documentation, education, consultation, networking and surveys.
This is the message board where we discuss dates, recent and rare sightings, as well as setting up the teams to conduct the migratory raptor counts. The Jenner Headlands Hawk Watch, at the Jenner Hawk Overlook at the stunning Wildlands Conservancy and Sonoma Land Trust location.
