Description:

Overlooking Bedford Valley’s patchwork of farms and forests, the Allegheny Front Hawk Watch is famously known as the best place in Pennsylvania to observe the fall migration of Golden Eagles. Join National Aviary ornithologist, Bob Mulvihill for a one-of-a-kind tour and eagle watching experience. While participants travel via chartered bus to the site, Bob will discuss the migration habits of eagles and hawks, as well as how to identify these magnificent birds of prey. In addition to Golden Eagles, participants may enjoy very close looks at other raptors as they soar near the watch site, with potential sightings of: Northern Harriers, Red-shouldered Hawks, Peregrine Falcons, Cooper’s Hawks, Sharp-shinned Hawks, Merlins and more!

The tour will depart from the National Aviary at 8:30 a.m. and will return around 5:30 p.m. Participants of all ages are welcome. A boxed lunch, snacks and water are included in the price of the tour. Bring your folding lawn chairs or blanket for a picnic lunch!
