Description:
 Clay & Pat Sutton’s program is based on their popular book by the same name. They will share their love of hawks and eagles and the "how to's" for finding, studying, and enjoying these fascinating birds of prey. They will bring to light the many Cape May connections. The program will convey the excitement of autumn at Cape May and the drama of hawk migration at many other hotspots they have visited, such as Hawk Mountain in Pennsylvania, Santa Ana NWR in Texas, Duluth in Minnesota, Braddock Bay in New York, and the incomparable “River of Raptors” in Veracruz, Mexico. They will cover raptor basics, finding hawks and eagles both near and far and throughout the seasons, and when and where to go.

Clay & Pat Sutton are a husband and wife team of naturalists and writers whose careers and names are synonymous with their home town of Cape May. Clay is a co-author, with Pete Dunne and David Sibley, of the classic Hawks in Flight (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 1988; 2nd Edition 2012), and Clay and his wife Pat have co-authored How to Spot Butterflies (1999), How to Spot Hawks & Eagles (1996), and How to Spot an Owl (1994). Their latest book, Birds and Birding at Cape May is the in-depth result of their efforts over many years documenting and protecting the migration and the Cape May area that they so love. This landmark book is a complete guide to birds and birding for the Cape May region, covering what to see, when, where, and how to go, as well as the storied ornithological history of the Cape.
