Each autumn, New Hampshire birders are treated to abundant flocks of broad-winged hawks beginning to migrate south. This September, Word of Mouth’s favorite bird dude Eric Masterson will be biking across five time zones, 40 degrees of latitude and 5000 miles tracking the migration of the raptors. Why? Well, despite the hawks’ impressive numbers, little is known about their migration.
Eric is taking a sabbatical as Land Protection Specialist with the Harris Center for Conservation Education – he’s author of Bird Watching in New Hampshire and joined us to talk about his project "A Kettle of One."
