Date/Time: Saturday, October 9, 2010. 10:30a.m. - Noon

Place: Connecticut Audubon Society Center at Fairfield, 2325 Burr Street, Fairfield, CT

There are hawks overhead and the question arises, “Mom, should we hide the puppy, and, will the hawk kill my cat?” Milan Bull, Senior Director of Science and Conservation at the Connecticut Audubon Society has all the answers about the unique and fascinating world of common backyard hawks. Join Bull on Saturday, October 9 from 10:30 – noon for a discussion about hawks overhead, where to go and what to see as they begin their migration southward. This lecture is truly a migration primer! For those who are interested, following his presentation, Bull will guide a short outdoor walk looking for hawks including a visit to the Larson Sanctuary’s re-built hawk watch platform at Deer Meadow. The fee to attend the lecture is $4/adults and $2/child for non-members and $2/adult and $1/child for Members.
