Learn to identify hawks (birds-of-prey) in flight during their migration. Identifying a hawk in flight is different than characterizing a perched bird. With practice, patience, and long hours of observation the skills of flight identification can be learned.
This presentation highlights recognizing hawk types, their flight characters, and assists in discovering flight ID (identification) clues. You will view ‘slides’ of the common eastern migrant raptors in flight and read narratives of their flight mechanics as indicators of identification. A review quiz is included.
