      Hawk & Owl Banding Trip

      Date: Sunday, April 4, 2004
      Time: 8:00AM - 12:00PM PDT (GMT-07:00)

      Sea & Sage Audubon is sponsoring 3 Hawk & Owl Banding trips in
      April at Starr Ranch Audubon Sanctuary. The trips, which will
      be conducted by Pete DeSimone and Scott Thomas, are part of a
      30+ year study in raptor ecology here in Southern California.
      Both men have had many years of experience with avian research
      with an emphasis on raptor biology and ecology. On these trips,
      either Pete, Scott, or another researcher will climb to a nest
      or nest box, carefully lower the raptor chicks to the ground,
      and perform the banding process with the field trip group

      The trips begin at 8:00 a.m., and will run for a 4-hour time
      period. Participants will be transported to the banding sites in
      Starr Ranch vehicles. They be able to get VERY close to the
      raptor chicks and learn about the nesting behavior of these
      great birds; this is a great opportunity for anyone who loves
      raptors, especially for those who enjoy photographing them. The
      Starr Ranch Audubon Sanctuary contains miles of pristine coastal
      sage scrub habitat, willow & sycamore riparian, and native bunch
      grass-covered hillsides all of which are a rare sight in Orange
      County nowadays.

      Trip fee is $30 per person; advance reservations are necessary.
