Additional information will be posted here as it becomes available. If you would like to receive email notices, send a note to Trudy Battaly with 'NEHW conference' on the subject line:



The NorthEast Hawk Watch (NEHW) was founded to promote the systematic study of migrating hawks. This involves collecting, organizing, publishing, and distributing hawk count data. We are the first self-sustaining chapter of the Hawk Migration Association of America (HMANA). Even with non-profit status, however, we have the expense of publishing and mailing the count data. We need your membership to help us accomplish this important task, seeking to answer the many unexplained questions relating to hawk migration.


JOIN US AT THE BARGAIN MEMBERSHIP COST OF $10!   Or use the Registration form.
