Who can explain our fascination with hawks?

At the Audubon Nature Center’s First Friday Lunch Bunch on April 1, you can learn about life histories of forest hawks and their kin: eagles, ravens and vultures.

U.S. Forest Service Natural Resource Specialist Ava Turnquist will be the presenter at the 11 a.m. event.

Hawks have specific habitat requirements. Turnquist will identify the local hawks that are forest dwellers, describe their habitat for nesting and foraging, and some of their unique behaviors.

With a degree in biology/ecology from the State University of New York at Fredonia, Turnquist has spent the last 27 years as a Natural Resource Specialist with the U.S. Forest Service.

Following the program, coffee and tea will be provided for a BYO brown bag lunch and conversation. The fee for attending is $8 or $6 for Friends of the Nature Center. Reservations are not required.

The Audubon Nature Center is at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York, and Warren, Pennsylvania.
