Dick Ashford, former Klamath Bird Observatory President and KBO Honorary Board Member, gives this three-part Powerpoint presentation on hawks – those fascinating creatures that capture our imaginations as few other bird groups do. Easily seen (but tough to identify), hawks push our primal poetic buttons. This popular course will examine the natural history of diurnal raptors – what makes a hawk a hawk, anyhow? We will also investigate hawks’ relationship with humans throughout history. This is NOT an ID class but, at the end of this course, you are guaranteed to be a dedicated hawk enthusiast!
