The Red-Shouldered Hawks of Allendale
A Free Zoom Talk by Jim Wright
Friday, October 28, at 7:30 p.m.
These endangered, magnificent hawks have made a remarkable recovery in Allendale, and can often be seen in the Celery Farm and elsewhere in town.
This past spring, a pair of adults had four young—the most in one brood ever—and all fledged.
Jim will talk about Red-shoulders in general and their history in Allendale -- dating back to the heyday of Stiles Thomas. With a surprise or two. The Zoom talk is free and open to the public.—with a surprise or two.
Jim, a marsh warden at the Celery Farm, monitors the nest for the state Department of Environmental Protection. He was able to document the hawk’s most recent nesting season and beyond with some great color photos.
Jim has written many books on nature and writes "The Bird Watcher" column for The Record.
The presentation is a partnership between Allendale's Lee Memorial Library and the Fyke Nature Association. The talk will start after an extremely brief meeting.
I will post the EventBrite link when it becomes available,
In the meantime, save the date.
These talks are funded by a generous grant from the Winifred M. and George P. Pitkin Foundation.
