Nighthawk Watch

August 30, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Join Bob McGarry for an evening of birding for Nighthawks at Fort Washington State park. Common Nighthawks are most active at dawn and dusk, not night, while they forage for aerial insects.Recent studies suggest a substantial decline in numbers of this species, perhaps owing to increased predation, indiscriminate use of pesticides leading to lowered insect numbers, or habitat loss. Feel free to bring your binoculars and/or camera! Dress appropriately.

This event is free, but we require registration. Space is capped at 20 participants, so make sure to sign up early!

If you are interested in carpooling to the event, please arrive at Bucks County Audubon Society (2877 Creamery Road, New Hope, PA 18938) at 5pm.
