Audubon Birding Day: Understanding Raptors with Brodie Cass Talbott

This more advanced raptor trip will explore the raptor-rich farmlands of Polk county, searching out as many species of hawks and falcons as possible, and keeping an eye out for Short-eared Owl on the wing as dusk approaches.

Bring lunch and dress for the weather. You will drive yourself for the day. Brodie will reach out with further details before the trip.
