Montclair Bird Club workshop to photograph hawk migration
On Sept. 25, Montclair Bird Club will host a workshop on identifying and photographing birds of prey in flight at New Jersey Audubon’s Montclair Hawk Lookout.
If conditions are right, attendees might see hundreds and maybe even thousands of hawks overhead making their annual migration south for the winter, according to a Montclair Bird Club press release.
Montclair Bird Club President and New Jersey Audubon Society Board Chair Wayne Greenstone, who has been watching hawk migration for many decades, and award-winning nature photographer Phil Witt will hold the workshop from 2 to 4 p.m.
The workshop, scheduled to coincide with the peak flights of the southbound birds of migration, is limited to 15 participants. Access to the hawkwatch is gained by climbing approximately 100 stairs.
To register for the workshop, send an email with the subject line “Hawk ID and Photography Workshop” to MontclairBirdClub100@gmail.com. COVID-19 vaccination(s) must have been completed at least 14 days prior to Sept. 25.
