Group Description

Northern California based, greater Bay Area region message board focusing on North American Birds of Prey. A message board where we can share sightings, photos, stories, information, issues and more. The North Bay Hawks yahoo group is an arm of West County Hawk Watch (WCHW) and NREC (Northbay Raptor Education and Conservation) the Raptor themed message board idea comes from North Bay Birds yahoo group and D.S.

West County Hawk Watch is a local raptor education and identification outreach group with a special interest and emphasis in helping people learn about the natural history, current threats and identification of birds of prey. W.C.H.W. was established over a decade ago largely for Survey's, Photography and Documentation of West Sonoma and West Marin Counties. Currently WCHW runs programs involving a core group of (currently) three dozen citizen scientists and professionals specializing in raptor identification, surveys, documentation photography, consultation, education, advocacy, protection and networking, all in the name of our North American Birds of Prey.

The W.C.H.W volunteers and members come from many different North Bay communities. Such as Madrone Audubon, Napa/Solano Audubon, Golden Gate Raptor Observatory, North Bay Birds, Sonoma Land Trust, Solano Land Trust and various North Bay Wildlife Care and Rescue Organizations, Chiefly, (BRC, SCWR, IBRRC. NSCC, WildCare)

If listing a bird, please reference where you saw it, what time of year it was and please leave contact information so we can follow up with you and the questions you may have. You can use the much debated Four Letter Banding Codes here. Such as SSHA = Sharp-shinned Hawk. If you don’t know the codes we will be happy to help you learn them.
