HMANA Meet Up – Northern New England

October 13-15, 2017

Do you enjoy meeting other raptor aficionados and HMANA members from your area and further afield? Are you interested in visiting HMANA network hawk watches on your own power, but with an expert guide? Would you like to share ideas with other site coordinators or volunteers who are involved in hawk watch sites, and see firsthand how some sites are organized? If your answer is yes to any of these, HMANA’s next Meet-Up in New England just might be for you!

HMANA’s second Meet-Up (and first in New England) will occur this October 13-15, and will feature New Hampshire’s Pack Monadnock and Carter Hill Raptor Observatories, as well as Vermont’s Putney Mountain Hawk Watch. Your registration entitles you to time spent at these well-known hawk migration monitoring sites with site coordinators and other key individuals. Mid-October is an exciting time for hawk watching as chances for Northern Goshawk and Golden Eagle increase significantly, and diversity of raptors is high. In addition, other nearby birding opportunities exist, and we will make special trips to see some of the local spectacles. This time frame is also well-known as peak season for foliage in the scenic Monadnock Region and Connecticut River Valleys of northern New England, so plenty of reasons to join!

Guided by Phil Brown (HMANA Tour Leader and Site Coordinator of Carter Hill and Pack Monadnock Raptor Observatory). Special guest will include Julie Brown, HMANA’s Monitoring Site Coordinator.
