This calendar item is just a reminder to register for this trip. The date of the trip is not yet known.

This trip’s goal is migrating Golden Eagles. The Franklin Mt. Hawk Watch is located on
the Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society Sanctuary, overlooking Oneonta, NY. It is noted for
late-season flights of Red-tailed Hawks and Golden Eagles. The middle of November is the best
time for viewing Golden Eagles migrating south.

As always here, weather plays a big part of any success, so the actual trip date will depend on
proper conditions. Dress for November weather as the top of Franklin Mt. can be wet, cold and
windy. Don’t be uncomfortable because you are cold and wet. Folding chairs are a good idea.
Contact the leader(s) by November 1 to register for this trip.

On trip day, meet at 8:00 a.m. at the Park and Ride Lot on Route 20 in Duanesburg. Take

left. The Park and Ride Lot will be a short way on the right.
