welcomes Michael Miller and his presentation, “Banding
and Identifying Raptures in South Texas.” Michael
has gained a wealth of knowledge during multiple South Texas
field studies by assisting, Bill Clark, one of the world's
foremost raptor experts.
As a result of his working with Mr. Clark, Michael has gained
valuable knowledge and experience while handling wild birds
Michael took up photography to share his passion for raptors
with others and to stimulate interest in the hawks and falcons
than can be found throughout the Valley.
Michael’s presentation will include how to find and
photograph, Harris’s Hawks, Peregrine Falcons, Red-tailed
Hawks, White-tailed Hawks and more. He will also include
information about his photographic style using natural light
and creating an image in the camera that exemplifies what
was observed in the field is accomplished.
Michael’s presentation will include photos and
information about raptor research in the Rio Grande Valley,
images of bay and Gulf shorebirds and migrants, and knowing
Mr. Miller, a few surprises along the way.
The public is invited to attend the meeting, which takes
