Sponsored by Whatcom Land Trust, world-renowned raptor expert Bud Anderson will teach his 33rd annual western Washington raptor identification and behavior class this January.  

Bud is founder of the Falcon Research Group, responsible for rescuing 562 raptors from Sea Tac airport and initiating the Annual Skagit Flats Raptor Count. 

Bud speaks from decades of intimate experience with raptors and shares his love story with students, teaching them to think like raptors, and take awe in their beauty. 

This course will focus on identifying characteristics, behavior, and life cycles of the raptors in our region, and will include an all-day field trip.  From beginners to seasoned birders, many students take the class multiple times, and report learning new  information each year.
