POP-UP PROGRAM: Birding the Nighthawk Migration in Peterborough
Sunday, August 25,
5:45 pm to 7:15 pm
Nighthawks are among the last migrants to arrive each spring and the earliest to depart each “fall,” with southbound migration peaking in late August. Reports from the 2019 migration are now trickling in! Join expert birder Phil Brown to search for the spectacle along the Contoocook River in Peterborough this Sunday evening. If it’s an “average” night, we’ll get great looks at a handful of these acrobatic birds. If it’s better than average, we just might see hundreds of nighthawks feeding in giant flocks.
5:45 to 7:15 p.m. on the new Riverwalk footbridge in Peterborough. Afterwards, all are welcome to join Phil for a pint at nearby Post and Beam Brewing. Bring binoculars, and be prepared for biting insects. For more information, please contact Phil at (603) 525-3499 or by email.
