Had an interesting day at Hawk Cliff near Port Stanley, ON. Saw harriers, kestral’s, and cooper’s. The weather was perfect for a day outside, not sure how many we’ve got left though, the chill is definitely in the air at night.
It was amazing watching these majestic birds as they flew – apparently there were over 50,000 sightings earlier in the week in the area. Their migration continues through October, where up to 15 different species can be seen during that time. Higher volumes are there now, higher variety in a couple of weeks. There are a number of hawk watching locations throughout North America where people can relax in the warm fall sun and watch the birds fly by.
