Birds of Prey: Neil Hayward
Time & Location
About the Event
The fastest bird on the planet is a bird of prey. Many are agents of stealth- hunting within sight of us but rarely seen. Join Neil Hayward to learn how to identify the different types, understand how they live their lives, and discover what adaptions they’ve had to make for a brutal lifestyle reliant on their hunting ability. Hawks, eagles, falcons, vultures - the subjects of myths and legends. Come find out the real story.
Neil has been a birdwatcher ever since he was strong enough to lift a pair of binoculars on his own. He is a past president of the Brookline Bird Club in Massachusetts, board member of the American Birding Association, counsel member of the Nuttall Ornithological Club, bird sightings editor for the journal Bird Observer and the author of Lost Among the Birds (Bloomsbury, June 2016), a memoir of his accidental big year.
