Northern New England Meet Up
HMANA’s second Meet-Up (and first in New England) will occur this October 4-6, and will feature New Hampshire’s Pack Monadnock Raptor Observatory and Vermont’s Putney Mountain Hawk Watch. Your registration entitles you to time spent at these well-known hawk migration monitoring sites with personal instruction and attention from the site coordinators, special presentations, and a group meal.
Early October is an exciting time for hawk watching as these sites are seeing the peak of diversity of raptors passing overhead, and there are chances for early Northern Goshawk and Golden Eagle. In addition, other nearby birding opportunities exist, and we may make a side trip in search of non-raptors. This time frame is also near peak season for foliage in the scenic Monadnock Region and Connecticut River Valleys of northern New England, so you have plenty of reasons to join!
This mainly do-it-yourself trip will offer flexibility in driving one’s own vehicle (or carpooling with friends) and choosing your own accommodations and eating choices. However, this weekend is also group-oriented so you’ll get to spend some quality time birding and hawkwatching with fellow HMANA members and representatives.
Leaders: Julie Brown (HMANA Monitoring Site Coordinator) and Phil Brown (HMANA Tours Committee Chair and tour leader)
