Hawk Festival, Erie Metropark, Michigan

September 19, 2011

The annual Hawkfest was held at Erie Metropark south of Trenton, MI recently. Photos show rehabilitated birds of prey as well as Tribal dancer from the Ho-Chunk Tribe from Wisconsin. The Wildlife Recovery Association presentation was good so support their organization at wildliferecovery.org and littleswampsanctuary.blogspot.com .  Marsha saw a group of 60 Broad-winged hawks fly overhead at Erie Metropark during the Hawkfest.

Update October 22.  There were many hawkwatchers today at Erie Metropark with their binocs and spotting scopes.  I got to see a Goshawk as well as two Rough-legged Hawks migrating today along with dozens of black vultures. The day was windless almost with scattered high clouds. Monarch butterflies were migrating also.
