Autumn Migration Hawk Watch

August 15, 2021 @ 8:00 am - December 15, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

$5 – $10

Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in Berks County, PA is one of the best places in North America to watch the annual hawk migration. The sanctuary begins to count the raptors as they head south on August 15th and conclude the count on December 15th, each year.

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!

Come spend time in Pennsylvania’s American Region and learn more about the annual raptor migration and this incredible spectacle of nature!

It's time to cure that cabin fever and explore the splendors of Lehigh Valley. Restaurants open their patios for outdoor dining, miles of the region's trails thaw out for long bike rides, and seasonal blooms paint a picture perfect scene for heading out on a covered bridge tour. https://t.co/KN8cwxo3jp

At 148 acres of rolling hills and woodlands, Montgomery Hall Park is a great asset to Staunton. Once you’re on the looping miles of wooded hiking trails, you might actually forget that you’re within city limits. Hikers will often spot birds, squirrels, and deer. @Staunton
