Autumn Migration Hawk Watch

September 18, 2018 @ 8:00 am - December 15, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

$5 – $10

The Annual Autumn Hawk Watch at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary began August 15 at the Sanctuary’s famed North Lookout. It is conducted daily, weather permitting, through December 15.

An average 18,000 birds of prey will soar over the Sanctuary’s rocky North Lookout, a 1,500-foot outcropping on the Kittatinny Ridge or “Blue Mountain.” Each year we tally the number and type of birds that pass. An official counter and interpreters are on hand to point out and identify birds.

Visitors should bring binoculars (or rent them at the Visitor Center), something soft to sit on, and a daypack with water and snacks. Plan to relax at the lookout and spend at least an hour. Many people spend the morning, afternoon or even the entire day!

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to learn more about hawk migration and enjoy this spectacle of nature!
