2017 Speaker Schedule

  • Thursday, March. 16
    Wayne Hoffman
    Oregon Peregrine Falcons

    A pair of Peregrine Falcons began nesting at Yaquina Head in 2012. This is the most accessible site in a naturalistic setting for observation and photography in the western United States. Wayne and other local photographers and birders have been documenting these birds ever since. Wayne will describe the Peregrine nesting cycle, from courtship to fledgling independence, including incubation, chick feeding behavior, prey selection, and nest defense. He will also illustrate social dynamics, including infidelity, mate replacement, and responses to visitors.

    Wayne Hoffman is a native Oregonian who graduated from Newport High School in 1969, then obtained Bachelorís and Masterís degrees in Zoology from Oregon State University, and a Ph. D in Biology from the University of South Florida. After a post-doc with the Kansas Biological Survey, he worked for 11 years for the National Audubon Society, conducting research on bird populations and habitat needs. He then returned to Newport, and has worked for the MidCoast Watersheds Council since 1999, currently as Policy Director.
