Red-tailed Hawks on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway With Christian Hunold and Jon Woodworth
Start Date: 4/15/2023Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Date: 4/15/2023End Time: 4:00 PM

Event Description

Join the flock with our Conversations With Birds Saturday Events Series!

Photographers Christian Hunold and Jon Woodworth have spent years documenting the lives of red-tailed hawks along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

Along their journey, they witnessed a different side of one of North America's premier museum districts — a home for countless wild animals. Hunold and Woodworth have gotten to know the hawk's habits and can recognize individual hawks with distinctive personalities.

Please join us for a presentation on a year in the life of the museum district's avian ambassadors as we share moments of boundless joy and times of terrible grief.

Though the hawks thrive on the Parkway, vehicle collisions, window strikes and rodenticide exposure take their toll. In this presentation, we invite you to consider how cities can better accommodate the needs of birds and discuss some solutions for being better neighbors to our avian counterparts.

This event is part of the Conversations with Birds Saturday Event Series.
