Hawk Mountain: A Conservation Success Story

IN 1973, HAWK MOUNTAIN'S Jim Brett and Alex Nagy wrote Feathers in the Wind, a field guide to the Sanctuary and one of the earliest field guides to migrating birds of prey. Jim later revised and expanded the Bookpopular guide in both 1986 and 1991.This year Hawk Mountain is proud to present a long-awaited and completely new publication that combines Jim Brett's overview of Hawk Mountain cultural and natural history with new chapters on raptor conservation, the threats raptors face today, Hawk Mountain's role in conservation ornithology, and finally, to share our optimism for raptors, thanks to our conservation science training program and global reach."This book is the perfect mix of old and new, and with illustrations by Julie Zickefoose, incredible photography, text by Keith and Jim, a foreword by Pete Dunne ... it all combines into a must-have for our Hawk Mountain supporters," says Sanctuary President Jerry Regan.

This project is made possible thanks to the generosity of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Peter Bennett and Jean Nevins, Cameron H. Fowler, the grandchildren of our founder Rosalie Edge, Deborah Edge, M.D. and Stephen Edge, M.D., and the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

The attractive 8x8" coffee table trade edition book will be available by Christmas and is hard cover publication with a laminate, full-color finish. Also available will be a special limited-run collector's copy, signed and numbered, complete with leather-bound cover, satin ribbon bookmark, gold-gilded edges, and foil-stamped front and spine.

ALL proceeds support Hawk Mountain raptor education programs.
