November 19th Program 7:30PM

“Raptor Migration in Central Pennsylvania”

Speaker: Nick Bolgiano

The next meeting of Seven Mountains Audubon, on Wednesday, November 19th at 7:30 PM, will feature Nick Bolgiano talking about “Raptor Migration in Central Pennsylvania.” He will discus the importance of Central Pennsylvania as an important fly-way for migrating raptors, especially Golden Eagles, and the Susquehanna Valley specifically for wintering raptors.

His talk will include photographs of migrating raptors taken at local hawk watches and will present migration trends and numbers for various raptors including sharp-shinned, red-tailed, red-shouldered, and rough-legged hawks, as well as new information about American kestrels.

Nick Bolgiano is co-author of Birds of Central Pennsylvania, which is an ornithological history of the birds of Clinton, Centre, Huntingdon, Mifflin, Juniata, and Blair counties. A statistician, he has written articles on bird trends in Pennsylvania and eastern North America, commonly about how humans affect the landscape and thus bird densities. Nick has written about pheasants, bob-whites, winter finches, chickadees, Carolina wrens, red-tailed and sharp-shinned hawks. He writes an annual summary of the Christmas Bird Count for the journal Pennsylvania Birds."
