14th Annual HawkWatch Weekend Festival Returns
Aug 29, 2012 12:39PM
Each autumn, 15,000 to 20,000 broad-winged hawks and 16 other species of hawks, eagles and vultures, are spotted as they migrate southwest over the hilltop known as the Quaker Ridge Hawk Watch in Greenwich, Connecticut.
The 14th Annual “HawkWatch Weekend Festival & Green Bazaar”, a family-friendly, green-themed celebration of the amazing raptor migration will be celebrated on September 22 and 23 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. This fundraising event features kids’ activities, organic and local foods, eco-friendly businesses, and a famous live birds of prey show at 1 & 3 p.m. This year the presenters will be Bill & Brian Robinson (Saturday) and Talons: A Bird of Prey Experience (Sunday). On Sunday, witness the release of rehabilitated raptors with Wildlife in Crisis at 4 p.m.
