Join the Nesmith Library and the Windham Historical Society (virtually) on Wednesday, October 21st at 6pm when we welcome Steve Hale of Open World Explorers to teach us about the region’s vultures, hawks, eagles, and falcons that can be regularly observed during fall migration. Steve's presentation will include high quality images of each species in flight, both from our vantage point on the ground, and from overhead at a favorite hawk-watch location. Technical tips on species shape, coloration, and behavior are provided to boost your own ability to ID these fabulous birds. Migration-timing data for some regional sites will be presented for different species, so you can know when to expect them in your area.  An introduction to a few regional hawk-watch sites is given, along with information on how to participate.

Steve Hale holds university degrees in marine biology, evolutionary biology, and ecology. He has lived in New Hampshire over 20 years and has explored most of the state. An avid hiker, birder, and experienced naturalist, Steve loves to share his experience and knowledge with others eager to learn. In April 2016, Steve formed Open World Explorers to more fully share his knowledge and experiences in ecology, ornithology, and Earth science, and to help others find personal value in the natural history and landscape of the area.
