POP-UP PROGRAM: Birding the Nighthawk Migration in Keene
Tuesday, August 25, 2020,
6:00 pm to 7:00 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. Join Cliff Seifer and Brett Amy Thelen to search for the spectacle from a vantage point in the Ashuelot River Valley. If it’s an “average” night, we should 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.
6 to 7 p.m. in Keene. Exact location will be provided upon registration. Bring binoculars, and be prepared for biting insects.
Space is limited, and registration is required. Please read our COVID-19 outing guidelines before registering to be sure this is the right event for you. This program is now full. If you’d like to add your name to the waitlist, please register online here and we will contact you if a spot opens up. For more information, please contact Brett by email.
