Hawkfest this weekend, SE Michigan...
Sep 17, 2009

There's excellent raptor watching all through September and October at Lake Erie Metropark. Migrating hawks by the thousands, eagles, osprey, all sorts of cute and cuddly feathered things.

This weekend is extra special there, a celebration called "Hawkfest", with informational programs, falconry demonstrations, bird photography tips, breakfast in the nature center...

Saturday should be nice all day. Sunday there's a chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon.

Tripods, long lenses, binoculars if you have them...

See you there.
