Harlan’s Red Tail Hawk

These events are open to the general public. Participants must accept total responsibility for themselves and their possessions. To enhance the birding experience for all, we encourage participants to read and follow the birding Code of Ethics adopted by the American Birding Association. We meet and try to car pool as fitting.

Come out and enjoy birding with us. Don’t be shy, it is a fun learning experience for all. For more field trip information, inquire at the program meeting, or contact any of the chapter officers.
