The World Famous Hawk Migration, Feb. 19

Eric Masterson has been fascinated with Bird Migration since he began birding at age 11. In October 2015, he flew to Kekoldi, Costa Rica to witness the world famous hawk migration that passes south through the Central American isthmus. He quickly realized the story was in the journey, not the destination.

Join us Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 2 p.m. in Taylor Community’s Woodside as Masterson tells the tale of his own journey, following several GPS-tagged birds on their flight south, leaving New Hampshire by bicycle beginning in September 2016 – final destination unknown. This free event is open to the public; however, reservations are required by calling 366-1226, as space is limited.

By day, Masterson works as a Land Specialist for the Harris Center for Conservation Education in Hancock, New Hampshire, where he runs the stewardship program for the organization’s approximately 10,000 acres of conservation easements, assists with new conservation projects, and coordinates their field trip program. He is currently working on a book about bird migration as told through the hawks and his journey.
