About the Event
Nighthawks were once common in cities throughout New Hampshire, where they nested on gravel roofs and fed on insects attracted to city lights. In recent years, these acrobatic birds have disappeared from many New Hampshire towns, but they still nest in Keene.
Help keep track of this charismatic endangered species by monitoring nighthawks in downtown Keene this summer! This online training will provide an introduction to nighthawk identification and ecology, and offer tips for nighthawk watching on your own — including where to scout for them in Keene’s twilight skies.
Zoom login details will be provided upon registration. Co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education and NH Audubon.
