Nighthawks are among the last migrants to arrive each spring and the earliest to depart each “fall,” with southbound migration peaking in late August. Join nighthawk enthusiasts Cliff Seifer and Brett Amy Thelen to search for the spectacle from a great vantage point in the Ashuelot River Valley. If it’s an average night, we should get good looks at a handful of these acrobatic flyers. If it’s better than average, we just might see hundreds of nighthawks foraging in giant flocks. Bring binoculars (or borrow some from us), and come prepared for biting insects.

Birding for All outings are designed for people of all abilities, including those who experience accessibility challenges as a result of a disability or other health concern. Beginning birders welcome!

6 to 7 p.m. in the rear parking lot of Stone Arch Village at 831 Court Street in Keene, near the raised garden beds. This site is wheelchair- and stroller-accessible. Space is limited, and registration is required.

For general information about Harris Center field trips, see our Outings Information page. For more information about this particular outing, including questions about accessibility, contact Brett.
