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!
