Sometimes called marsh hawks, state-endangered Northern Harriers hover & glide low over open fields & marshes while hunting voles, snakes, and frogs. Their low buoyant flight, upswept wings, & white rump patch are very distinctive. For more than three decades, NH Audubon raptor biologist Chris Martin has recruited, trained, & supervised an enthusiastic corps of volunteer field observers who monitor state endangered & threatened birds of prey.
In an ongoing effort to educate the public about loons, we host a number of fun and informative events through the year, for example, talks, cruises, festivals, and fundraisers.
Please note: Due to Covid-19, scheduled events may not occur or be held online. We will be updating information as we get it.
