Saturday, September 16, HAWK WATCHING AND SONGBIRDS AT THACHER STATE PARK (Albany County; morning)

Coordinators: Tom and Colleen Williams

We will be looking for migrating Broad-winged Hawks that use the warming air thermals along the face of the escarpment to continue their migration south. Other raptors may be seen using the thermals for similar reasons. Osprey, Bald Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks, Sharp-shinned and Coopers Hawks are among those that can be seen soaring over the Helderbergs. Ruby-throated Hummingbirds also migrate over the escarpment very low and fast, and sparrows and warblers can also be found along the trails around the overlook.

Meet at 9:30 a.m. at the upper level of the overlook at John Boyd Thacher Park in Voorheesville.
