Hawk Mountain, Kempton, Pennsylvania
Today was a beautiful day for a visit to Hawk Mountain. By early Fall, we are well into hawk migration season. We saw dozens of sharp-shinned hawks, several kestrel, several red-tailed hawks, a northern harrier, an osprey, an immature bald eagle, and a peregrine falcon. We also witnessed an aerial "boxing match" between a raven and a red-tailed hawk!
