“They can be easily seen but tough to identify, and they push our primal poetic buttons,” Haystack Awareness coordinator Nala Cardillo. “Simply stated, hawks have charisma. In this popular talk, we will examine the natural history of diurnal raptors. What makes a hawk a hawk, anyhow? This is not an ID class but, at the end of this course, you are guaranteed to be a dedicated hawk enthusiast.”
Ashford is the President of the Klamath Bird Observatory (www.klamathbird.org) and former Chair of the American Birding Association. He has spent hundreds of hours observing hawks in the field and an equal amount of time researching their natural history. Dick is a popular hawkwatching tour leader in both southern Oregon and northern California and a frequent presenter at birding festivals.
