Quaker Ridge Hawk Watch Weekend

Celebrate 50 Years of Quaker Ridge Hawk Watch with a homage to our original Hawk Watch Weekend events featuring Live Raptors, Hawk ID Workshops and the spectacle of migrating birds of prey!

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately.

As we conclude the 50th anniversary year of Quaker Ridge Hawk Watch, Greenwich Audubon Center is thrilled to announce a two-day celebration of the importance of birds of prey and their incredible migratory journeys. While not of the large scale of our Fall Festivals, this event is a homage to the original Hawk Watch Weekend public events of the 1980s hosted at Greenwich Audubon Center.

People of all ages will be able to enjoy meeting hawks & owls up close during Live Raptor Presentations by falconers & local wildlife rehabilitators as well as learn how to identify the dozens of species of migratory hawks, eagles, falcons and vultures over our heads during Raptor Identification Workshops.

Attendees will be able to scan the skies at Quaker Ridge Hawk Watch from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with our staff & volunteer hawk counters as they point out raptors flying overhead. During this period of peak raptor migration we anticipate large numbers of species such as Bald Eagle, Osprey, Sharp-Shinned Hawk, American Kestral and on days of ideal weather thousands of Broad-Winged Hawks in a single day.
