Hawk Mountain Sanctuary Hosts Lecture May 13 By Birds Of Prey Author Pete Dunne

Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in Berks County will host author Pete Dunne on May 13 at 2 p.m. as he presents a look into his new book, Birds of Prey: Hawks, Eagles, Falcons, and Vultures. His lecture will be immediately followed by an exclusive book signing.
The presentation and signing will take place in the Sanctuary's Visitor Center Gallery and are free to the public.
During the presentation, Dunne will offer a look behind the writer's slate with this insightful and anecdotal overview of his new book, which is a definitive guide to raptors with hundreds of stunning color photographs showing raptors up close, in flight, and in action.
These gorgeous photographs enhance the comprehensive, authoritative text, which goes beyond identification to cover raptor ecology, behavior, conservation, and more. The program will be followed by a book signing where attendees have the opportunity to purchase his book.
Pete Dunne is an American author, known for his writings on nature and birding, often with focus on raptors, including Hawks in Flight, Hawk Watch: A Guide for Beginners, The Art of Pishing, and many more.
He is also the founder of the World Series of Birding, as well as Birding Ambassador for the New Jersey Audubon Society and the former director of the Cape May Bird Observatory.
In 2001, Dunne received the Roger Tory Peterson Award from the American Birding Association for lifetime achievement in promoting the cause of birding.
On May 13 Hawk Mountain will also host the International Migratory Bird Day celebration, with kid-friendly activities and information available from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. in the Visitor Center.
