Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society Hotspot Field Trip to Hawkwatch at Lake Erie Metropark (MI) on Saturday, September 21, 2019
Mid-September is a terrific time of year for hawk migration through the upper mid-west. While eastern North American raptors migrate through the area between late August right through early winter, the dates we have chosen give us the best opportunity to see large kettles of Broad-winged Hawks. In addition, good numbers of American Kestrels and Sharp-shinned Hawks should be on the move as well as a few other raptors and some songbirds such as Cedar Waxwings and Blue Jays.
January can be a terrific month for gull-watching along the Lake Erie shore. We’ll brave the frigid temperatures and strong winds to see if we can find both the common and rarer gull species, as well as other wintering birds like ducks, grebes, loons, and raptors.
This is a good date for maximizing migrant, resident and wintering waterfowl including geese, swans, dabbling ducks and divers.
