Birding Festival of the Keys - B.E.A.K.S.

Birding Festival of the Keys

Oct. 5 & 6, 2019
Florida Keys Hawk Watch Weekend Adventure

A great weekend getaway to see hawk migration at its peak. A focus will be on identifying hawks in flight where wing patterns and silhouette are critical in identification. Scan the sky for Peregrine Falcons that screech through the sky dive - bombing prey.

At a stop at Curry Hammock State Park we will visit the Hawkwatch research station to search for up to 10 species of raptors such as Broadwing, Sharp-shinned and Cooper's Hawks. Late fall warblers up to 12 species may be found including Chestnut-sided, Swainson's, Bay-breasted and Indigo Buntings and Rose-breasted Grosbeak at Ft. Zachary Taylor.

Keys specialties will be targeted and Shorebirds will be spotted at Anne's and a special beach. With a weather event we can hope for a fallout of the last of the fall songbirds at stops at North Key Largo, Windley Key and Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park. LAST YEAR Western Spindalis.

COST-$345 (dbl. occupancy) includes 2 days of expert birding, informational handouts, transportation, breakfast and 1 lunch. BRING-overnight bag, rain gear, sun protection. For reservation contact Paddy at birdpaddy@yahoo.com
