Tues. Oct. 3: Wood Duck Count. Same as Sept. 26 above.
Wed. Oct 11: Hawk Watch. Start time will be determined by the weather. Please call Renee
at 845-798-3266 for meeting time and if the weather is good for viewing hawks. Meeting at the commuter parking lot in Wurtsboro and carpooling from there. People with four-wheel drive vehicles will be able to drive to the parking lot at the top of the ridge, but others will ride with me. It will be a short walk from the gate to the tower. The tower is 5 stories tall and we will pace ourselves to climb it slowly. We will spend as long as we want there, but I’m leaning on ending around lunch time. Bring a chair if you need to sit. From 2003 thru 2014, Sullivan County Audubon conducted a hawk watch under the
guidance of John Haas at the Summitville Fire tower. Over that period, 34,239 hawks were counted, consisting of 17 different species.
