SPEAKER: Steve Walter
TOPIC: Photographer’s Eye on Hawks
At our next monthly meeting, Steve Walter will tell the story of hawks by sharing many of
his favorite photographs. Migration in the New York area and identification issues will be
emphasized, and the program will also include a look at species and subspecies from
around the United States.
Steve has been a naturalist in the New York area for over 30 years. He organized and
conducted a hawk watch at Fort Tilden (on the Rockaway Peninsula in Queens) from
1991 through 1995, and served as a regional editor for the Hawk Migration Association
of North America. His other projects have included a study of dragonfly migration at Fort
Tilden in the 1990s and ongoing surveys of moths at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge,
Muttontown Preserve (Nassau County’s largest preserve), and Ward Pound Ridge
Reservation (in Westchester). Steve has studied butterfly and dragonfly distribution on
Long Island, including documenting a number of locally rare species.
