With September’s arrival, many different species of hawks are winging their way south across the Blue Ridge Parkway, making for a great opportunity to work on identification techniques.
To this end, on Saturday at Waterrock Knob Visitor Center (M.P. 451.2) from 1:30 p.m. until 2:30 p.m., there will be a program on raptors: where they come from, where they’re going and how they get there.
Binoculars are available, or bring your own. Tips will be given on how to properly use them when hawks are in full flight. Additionally, experts will provide information on hawk counts, and where the best areas on the parkway are for spotting these grand birds as they migrate.
