HMANA Conference 2018

Soaring Toward the Future: New Challenges in Raptor Migration

October 12-14, 2018, Detroit, MI

About the Conference

The conference will be conveniently located at the Detroit Airport Marriott.

Kate Davis, author and founder of the nonprofit Raptors of the Rockies, is our opening keynote speaker.  She will talk about her 30 years as a raptor educator at schools throughout the west.  Todd Katzner, research biologist, will be our Saturday evening keynote speaker. He will talk about his research with eastern Golden Eagles and how little was known about their migration ecology.

Field trips are planned to the Detroit River Hawkwatch, Holiday Beach Bird Observatory (Ontario), Marshlands Museum, Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge visitor’s center, and more!

Join raptor enthusiasts, researchers, hawkwatch counters, birders and those just wanting to learn more about raptors at this exciting every four year event, being held for the first time in the Detroit area.

We hope you will join us in Detroit in October!

 

HMANA’s Mission

Since 1974 HMANA has promoted and studied migratory patterns and behavior of diurnal birds of prey.  HMANA has set the standard for recording species data; created HawkCount.org, a robust raptor monitoring database, and partnered in analyzing count data to interpret raptor population trends with the Raptor Population Index (RPI).  Now our network of over 200 hawkwatches across North America is more timely than ever before as field birders, research scientists, banders and the hawkwatching public face serious challenges to our work from urbanization, climate and migratory changes and lack of nature awareness.

Field Trips

Field trips are planned to the Detroit River Hawkwatch, Holiday Beach Bird Observatory (Ontario), Marshlands Museum, Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge visitor’s center, and more!
