Ever wanted to meet James Currie, beat writer on 10,000 Birds and star of Birding Adventures TV?  Or Mike Freiberg, beat writer on 10,000 Birds and Nikon Birding Marker Specialist? Yeah, me too!  You’ll have your chance three weekends from now, 15-16 October, at the Extreme Raptor Weekend in Hamburg, Pennsylvania.  Want to know more?  Check out the video below…

Sounds great, no?  Even better, the first 50 kids under the age of 12 each day will get a free pair of binoculars! Everyone will have a chance to use them as well as Hawk Mountain, the famed location for watching migrating hawks, is nearby.

Have fun and say “Hi!” to James for me, would you?
