Hawk migrations are among the most extraordinary animal spectacles in the world. Each year tens of thousands of raptors follow the Atlantic, Gulf, and Pacific coastlines, inland mountain ridges, and northern and western Great Lakes shorelines en route to their ancestral wintering grounds. As they do, they offer birders, ornithologists, and naturalists opportunities to observe their flight at scores of watch sites.
With this comprehensive guide, veteran hawk watcher Donald S. Heintzelman provides detailed information on 460 watch sites throughout North America and profiles forty-one species of diurnal raptors and vultures, including the cosmopolitan Peregrine Falcon, the critically endangered California Condor, and the elusive Golden Eagle.
Inside you'll find:
* Descriptions and directions to each watch site
* Seasonal migration ratings
* Information on flight style, voice, habitat, nesting, and range
* Special sections on Bald Eagle viewing, hawk identification, field equipment, and the mechanics of hawk flight
Whether you are a biologist, conservationist, or simply looking for a new adventure, let Guide to Hawk Watching in North America lead you to the best raptor-viewing sites on the continent.
Don S. Heintzelman is a professional naturalist and nature writer. This is his twentieth book. He lives in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
