Hawks Across Open Skies
Rose Tree Park | Wed, September 20, 2017, 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Each fall, thousands of hawks, falcons, and eagles move across our region in a spectacle of soaring migration. After spending the spring and summer raising their young, the raptors heed their instincts to fly south for the winter, stopping only to eat and rest along the way.
Natural Lands partners with Birding Club of Delaware County to highlight raptors in flight at Rose Tree Park. The park’s wide open landscape provides ideal vantage for viewing, and sharing the citizen science experience with others.
Rose Tree Park, an official HawkWatch location since 1999, is an ideal spot to watch raptors soar across the open skies of Delaware County. Situated between the Delaware River and Springton Lake Reservoir, Rose Tree Park provides important food and water resources for migrating birds.
Meet Natural Lands staff member Debbie Beer at the gazebo in Rose Tree Park. Knowledgeable volunteers and staff will share a wealth of knowledge, enthusiasm, guide books, and scopes.
Bring binoculars if you have them; a few will be available to borrow.
