Katy Duffy of Yellowstone National Park will present a program on "Winged Predators: Raptors of Yellowstone" at the Sacajawea Audubon Society's meeting Monday, March 12th. From frequently seen red-tailed hawks to rarely encountered boreal owls, numerous diurnal and nocturnal raptors inhabit the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Duffy will discuss raptor ecology and identification tips along with the role of citizen science in the new Yellowstone Raptor Initiative.
