Join Sue Cottrell for an in-person program introducing you to the 15 raptor species seen in Northwest Washington. Skagit County is one of the best places in the country to see raptors in the winter. Sue will help you learn the field marks and behaviors to look for when trying to identify these birds. Sue has studied birds of prey and guided outdoor trips for more than 30 years, including trapping and banding raptors as a volunteer of the Falcon Research Group, based in Bow, WA. A resident of Whatcom County for 40 years, she is one of the lucky ones that can say she has had several “5 falcon species days.” She will share her current research and photos of her latest projects working with Red-tailed Hawks and American Kestrels as part of her non-profit organization, Raptor Studies Northwest. More information is available at https://raptorresearchnw.org/ or by contacting Sue at raptorstudiesnw@gmail.com.
