      Hawk & Owl Banding Trip

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

      Have you ever watched a hawk or owl chick being banded? Have
      you ever been so close to a raptor chick that you could touch
      it? If you are one of those birders who enjoy being in very
      close proximity hawks and owls, then the upcoming banding trips
      are for you.

      Beginning on April 4th, Sea & Sage will be conducting a series
      of Hawk & Owl Banding Trips at Audubon California�s Starr
      Ranch Sanctuary in Trabuco Canyon. The banding process is part
      of a 30+ year study in raptor ecology here in Southern
      California. Either Pete DeSimone or Scott Thomas will climb to a
      nest or nest box, carefully lower the raptor chicks to the
      ground, and then perform the banding process with the field
      trip group in close proximity. Both Pete and Scott have had many
      years of experience with avian research with an emphasis on
      raptor biology and ecology. Possible candidates for banding
      include Red-shouldered or Red-tailed Hawks, or Barn Owls.

      Advance reservations are needed for these special trips.
      Proceeds will be contributed to the Center for Biological
      Diversity which has filed litigation actions against the
      operation of wind turbine power production in Altamont Pass.
      (Unfortunately, these non-polluting energy sources cause the
      death of a tremendous number of migratory birds including
      hundreds of raptors at Altamont Pass alone.) Your donation of
      $30 or more will go directly to this important raptor
      conservation effort.

      To make your reservation, select the trip date of your choice,
      mail check payable to �Sea & Sage Audubon� to: Banding
      Trips, c/o Nancy Kenyon, 32 Almond Tree Ln, Irvine CA 92612.
      Please provide your phone number (in case we need to contact you
      at the last minute) and your email address for trip confirmation
      & information. For more information on the issue of wind
      turbines at Altamont Pass, go to:
