Turkey Point Raptor Migration - Members Only
Look high in the sky at Turkey Point and you will see migrating hawks and falcons. Join Phil Powers and the volunteers from Turkey Point Hawk Watch (happening since 1994!) to learn how to identify these birds of prey by color, shape, size, and silhouette. Meet at the Estuary Center at 8 a.m. to van pool to the Turkey Point Lighthouse parking area, or meet there at 9 a.m. Be prepared to walk up to 2 miles on easy to moderate terrain. The day will include a tour of the Turkey Point Lighthouse, and lunch at the North East Family Restaurant (each person covers their own lunch.)
