International Hawk Migration Week

The second annual International Hawk Migration Week is slated for September 19-27 this year. Each fall, thousands of hawks, vultures, and eagles migrate from Canada and the US to their wintering grounds in Central and South America.

Many popular sites have dedicated hawk counters that track their migration. Visit any of the great hawk watching sites on the North Carolina Birding Trail to see this annual spectacle, or contact Hawk Migration Association of North America to join the official count!
