Hawk Cliff Weekend #1: Sep 12-13

This year, the first Hawk Cliff Weekend is perfectly timed for the main push of Broad-winged Hawks. Historically, our peak for this species is Sep 17th and in past years we've had as many as 130,000 Broad-winged Hawks recorded in a SINGLE DAY!! (along with many other species too).  So come out and join us and make sure to be looking up!

Daily Live-bird Demos

11:00 a.m. & 2:00 p.m.

 

Hawk Cliff Weekend #2: Sep 19-20

Our second weekend this year is timed to catch the end of the main Broad-winged Hawk flights and with a little luck, the first of the Peregrine Falcons. Last season we counted 1000's of Kestrels and Sharpies during this timeframe.

This is typically when we see the largest volumes of our September migrants, so come and join us for some great hawkwatching!
