Would you like to see 1,000 hawks fill the sky? How about dozens of migrating golden eagles in a single day?

These may sound like scenes from a nature documentary but they can be experienced within minutes of downtown Williamsport. Join David Brown of the Lycoming Audubon Society for a “Raptors of Lycoming County” presentation about the hawks, eagles, falcons, and owls that can be seen in the area from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 29 at the James V. Brown Library, 19 E. Fourth St.


This program will cover the basics of observing and identifying these amazing birds. Brown is the vice president of the Lycoming Audubon Society. He is an avid birder, photographer and hawk watcher. He regularly writes articles about birds for the Williamsport Sun-Gazette and Lock Haven Express. He is co-creator of LycoBirds.com, an informational website about the birds of Lycoming County.

This program is one of the many ways Pennsylvania public libraries support the PA Forward Initiative by providing civic and social literacy opportunities for learning.

The program will be presented in the Lowry Room on the third floor of the Welch Children’s Wing. Registration is suggested, but not required. Visit calendar.jvbrown.edu to register or call 570-326-0536.

The James V. Brown Library is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday; noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday; and 24/7 at www.jvbrown.edu.
