Hawks of Summer

June 16, 7:00 am - 2:00 pm

Hawks of Summer – led by Jim Estep

Saturday • June 16 • 7 am – 2 pm • 18 guests • $75

Travel with raptor expert Jim Estep to the nesting and foraging sites of the Swainson’s Hawk, a California threatened species, which makes its summer home in Yolo County. You’ll have ample opportunity to identify and learn about other raptors as well.

Just when you’re getting a little tired and hungry the group will stop for lunch at a lovely country home in rural Yolo County where you’ll share stories of the morning’s adventures and hopefully have a chance to see the long-time resident Great-horned Owls.

Jim Estep is a wildlife biologist who has been working with Swainson’s Hawks for over 35 years. He has done research on various aspects of the species’ ecology, prepared management and conservation plans, and conducted surveys throughout the Central Valley and elsewhere.
