      Antelope Valley Hawk Banding Trip
      Sunday, Jan. 4th - 7:00 a.m.


      In the fall and winter months, migratory raptors flood into the Antelope
      Valley and upper desert regions. Red-tailed Hawks are a sure bet with
      many others such as Prairie Falcons, Rough-legged and Ferruginous Hawks,
      American Kestrels, Northern Harriers, and even Golden Eagles. Unlike
      most birding trips, this one offers close-up views of the raptors
      because Pete Bloom and Scott Thomas are going to be banding those they
      catch. Very early risers may also see owls.

      DIRECTIONS: Meet at Ave. A and Hwy. 14 in the Antelope Valley. From
      Orange County & Los Angeles, take the #5 Freeway north to #14 (Antelope
      Valley Freeway); exit on #14 and drive north approximately 45 miles
      (through Lancaster) until you reach Avenue A. Turn left on Avenue A and
      park.

      DRESS WARMLY; BRING LUNCH, A MAP, and a FULL TANK OF GAS. We will be
      out until at least 2:00, rain or shine.
