HMANA Lunch & Learn Series: The Phantom; Tracking Red-shouldered Hawks

Wednesday, August 23 at 12:00 pm EST

We welcomed John Jacobs for the Hawk Migration Association of North America (HMANA) August lunch and learn program featuring Red-shouldered Hawks. John and Eugene Jacobs are attempting to determine the breeding range, nest site fidelity, breeding habitat use, migration timing and routes, wintering areas and wintering habitat used by Red-shouldered Hawks (Buteo lineatus) that breed in Wisconsin. John shared about this important telemetry data and research for constituents.
John Jacobs has been passionate about hawks since his early twenties, having studied them since 1971. With a Bachelor of Science degree from St. Norbert College and a Master of Environmental Science degree from UW-Green Bay, he was the Curator of Science at the Neville Public Museum of Brown County, Wisconsin for 32 years. He has been on the Board of Northeastern Wisconsin Audubon Society for more than 35 years, often serving as president.

Retiring from the museum in 2013 allowed him to turn his research on Red-shouldered Hawks into a full-time commitment. He and his wife of over 40 years, Mary, have 2 sons and 3 grandchildren and live in Green Bay.
