Spring Hawk Migration Studies coming soon to a mailbox near you!

The spring issue of Hawk Migration Studies will soon be mailed, and to whet your appetite, here’s a bit about what you can look forward to in the new issue.

First off, we’ll have an extensive article from Nick Bolgiano about changes in Red-tailed Hawk wintering patterns. Nick used HawkCount data going back into the ‘70’s to show the changes.

HMANA is planning a couple of new tours within the next year, including a fall hawkwatching tour to several of the east’s biggest fall sites, including Waggoner’s Gap, Hawk Mountain and Cape May. Also on the horizon is a tour to the Dry Tortugas in February 2014.

If you weren’t able to attend HMANA’s conference in Greenwich, Connecticut, this past October, Julie Brown recaps all the action.

What are the odds any of us will get a chance to visit Cuba and see hawk migration there? Not very good, unfortunately. So we have the next best thing with an article about raptor monitoring in Cuba.

Laurie Goodrich updates HMANA’s data scanning project. Many of those old pre-electronic “green sheets” are finally being entered into the HawkCount database.

Daena Ford reports on the recent HMANA survey that many of you participated in.

And, of course, there’s plenty more and lots of great photos, too! Keep an eye on your mailbox. The spring issue will be arriving soon!
