Hawks, eagles, and falcons can be challenging to identify, particularly in flight. Dave Irons and Shawneen Finnegan will cover the basics of raptor identification in the evening class, and then you’ll have an opportunity to practice your new skills on a field trip to Bonney Butte, a hawk migration study site near Mt. Hood that offers an opportunity to see migrating raptors on their way to their wintering grounds. Dave Irons is one of Oregon’s top birders, and Shawneen Finnegan once lived in one of the most famous hawk-watching locations in North America (Cape May, New Jersey), where she observed thousands of hawks each fall.


Class with Field Trip, limited to 20 participants: $95 members / $115 non-members (transportation provided)
Class-only Option: $14
