About the event

Mid September is when large gatherings of Broad-winged Hawks congregate and make their fall flight to Central and South America. Waggoner's Gap in Carlisle, Pennsylvania is one of several hawk watch sites along the Kittatinny Ridge where large numbers of migrating hawks can be observed. With the right conditions, one is able to observe thousands of broad-wings fly by in "kettles" of more than 100 hawks at a time. It truly is a spectacle to see. 

I hope you will be able to join us on September 16, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for a fun day watching these fabulous birds of prey as they embark on their annual voyage. Stay as long as you'd like.

We will meet at the Waggoner's Hawk Watch parking area with a short hike up to the hawk watch location. 

Proceeds to benefit the Central Pennsylvania Audubon Society who maintains the site. 

Rain date: Sunday Sept. 17, 2023.
