Hawk Watch Celebration with Live Raptors from Christine's Critters at Greenwich Audubon Center

Hawk Watch Celebration with Live Raptors from Christine's Critters

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

This year marks 50 years since hawk counting began at the Greenwich Audubon Center, and you are invited to celebrate this milestone! Visit the Quaker Ridge Hawk Watch between 9am-5pm to learn about the spectacle of hawk migration and help hawk watchers spot migrating hawks, eagles, falcons, and vultures overhead.

To give you a special opportunity to see these amazing birds up close, Christine's Critters will present two live raptor shows at 11am and 1pm on the Hawk Watch Lawn. Raptor rehabilitators Christine & Betsy Peyreigne will bring an incredible cast of hawks, falcons, eagles, and owls to share the importance of these beautiful birds in our ecosystems. You will get to meet raptors big and small, from Higgins the tiny Northern Saw-Whet Owl (a species now famous for being discovered in the Rockefeller Center tree) to Aurora the Bald Eagle with her 7-foot wingspan! Attendees can sign up for ONE of the two raptor program times at either 11am or 1pm.

Visitors are also welcome to assist hawk counters at Quaker Ridge Hawk Watch throughout the day from 9am-5pm and to watch hawks every day through Nov. 30.

This in-person program has a limited capacity and will be held entirely outdoors. All participants are required to wear a face mask covering for the duration of the program. Buildings and facilities are still closed to the public, so plan accordingly as restrooms will not be available. For the Live Raptor Shows, tickets MUST be purchased in advance. There will be no ticket sales at the door the day of the program. Please be prepared to show proof of your ticket registration, either as a printed copy of your registration receipt or your registration confirmation email on your phone. Please register for the quantity of ALL members in your party. Meet in the Greenwich Audubon Center parking lot at the start of the program. Event will be held rain or shine. In the event of rain, the Raptor Shows will be held in our pavilion tent.
