Now is a great time to spot hawks, like this broad-winged hawk seen flying over a field in Putney.

Now is a great time to spot hawks, like this broad-winged hawk seen flying over a field in Putney.

It's migration time again, which means high overhead, we'll see a steady stream of birds heading southward. But many of them also winter here. So it's a perfect time to get some direction on where to look and what to look for.

Bird Diva Bridget Butler will talk hawks, discuss the worldwide decline in raptor populations and what impact Hurricane Florence has on migrating birds.

Broadcast live on Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2018 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
