HMANA continues its monthly virtual Lunch & Learn series with Raptor ID Part 2, Early and Late Species. As spring migration begins, this is the perfect time to brush up on your ID skills before looking to the skies! We are excited to welcome back Josh Haas who will focus on early and late migrants featuring photographs, flight ID tips, and videos comparing species side by side from his movie Hawks on the Wing.
Josh Haas, HMANA board vice-chair, spent seven fall seasons working with the Detroit River Hawk Watch as a relief counter. There he honed his skills and developed a love for teaching visitors unique ways of telling the shadowy species apart. His goal of making hawks accessible to everyone spawned his movie Hawks on the Wing, teaching viewers hawks in flight through the use of video and audio commentary. Josh’s passion started with raptors but he can be found birding and photographing in all seasons, often with his wife, daughter, and son.
For those not able to join via Zoom, we will stream the session LIVE on our Facebook page
