From August through November, the Washington Valley Park Hawk Watch Area is host to several hundred hawkwatchers from all over the northeastern United States. Armed with binoculars, spotting scopes and cameras, they come to witness the thousands of hawks, falcons, and eagles flying overhead, sometimes just over the treetops. The hawkwatchers count and identify the onslaught of raptors making their journey to Central and South America. Endangered and threatened birds such as ospreys, peregrine falcons, and bald eagles are just some of the noteworthy birds soaring above the area, especially when weather conditions are just right.
