DescriptionLake Erie Metropark and surrounding areas provides some of the best fall hawk watching on the continent. Co-author of Birds of the Toledo Area, raptor aficionado and all around good guy Steve Lauer will help us usher in autumn with an old-fashioned hawk watch. The BIG Broad-winged Hawk flight may or may not happen on this particular day, but with a little luck from Mother Nature, there should be a fair number of migrating hawks moving overhead. Be sure to watch Rarebird.org or Facebook for updates, as the trip is subject to cancellation if the weather is particularly poor. Meet leader Steve Lauer at the Boat Launch at Lake Erie Metropark at 10am. It costs $10 per car to enter the park.
