April 5: The Adaptation to and Proliferation of Raptors in Urban Environments in Milwaukee and Elsewhere: What’s Happening???   by Dr. Bill Stout     

April 5, 5:00PM – 7:00PM

LIVE: Riveredge Nature Center 4458 County Rd Y, Saukville, WI 53080


This will be both a live and Zoom program with Dr. Bill Stout sharing decades of research on nearly every aspect of urban Cooper’s Hawks and other raptors which have relatively recently learned how to not only adapt to and survive living in urban settings but more significantly how to thrive in densely populated cities like Milwaukee. Dr. Stout has conducted research on hawks and owls over many decades with numerous publications of his work with raptors, especially Cooper’s Hawks — a species deemed   “threatened” by the Wisconsin DNR in 1979. Be prepared for a fascinating narrative about how and why the Cooper’s Hawk rebounded and how it is that other raptors have taken to living in heavily populated urban environments. Raptors banded by Dr. Stout in Southeast Wisconsin: 2139 Red-tailed Hawks, 691 Great Horned Owls, 1849 Cooper’s Hawks, 72 Ospreys, and more!

This program is being presented by the Noel J. Cutright Bird Club and will occur at the Riveredge Nature Center on April 5 at 7 PM. Information about attending through Zoom will be forthcoming. Zoom link:
