Saturday September 15 – Sunday September 16, 2018. Witness the migration spectacular at Holiday Beach Conservation Area as tens of thousands of hawks and raptors fly overhead on their annual journey to nesting grounds in the south.
Holiday Beach was identified by Audubon Magazine as one of the top sites in North America for raptor viewing. The Festival of Hawks is hosted in partnership with the Holiday Beach Migration Observatory (HBMO), and features a range of free educational activities and nature-themed programming. HBMO experts will be on-site conducting hawk banding and adoptions. Event goers will get up close and personal to a variety of raptors as experts measure, tag, and then release these birds back into the wild. Visitors will also be in awe at the live raptor display and a wide range of free educational and family-oriented programs.
