OBSERVE ANNUAL EAGLE AND HAWK MIGRATION AT BAD ROCK CANYON
From NOON until 4PM
MEET AT HOUSE OF MYSTERY FISHING ACCESS SITE
ALONG US HIGHWAY 2, WEST OF BAD ROCK CANYON, BETWEEN COLUMBIA FALLS AND HUNGRY HORSE
On Sunday, October 11, you can enjoy the annual eagle and hawk migration at Bad Rock Canyon from the comfort of your lawn chair and with experienced guides and quality spotting scopes! Join Kathy Ross of Flathead Audubon, Craig Hohenberger and others at the House of Mystery Fishing Access Site along US Highway 2, just west of Bad Rock Canyon, from noon to 4 p.m.
At this time of year, expect to see Golden Eagles, Bald Eagles, hawks, accipiters and possibly migrating or resident Perigrine Falcons. This is the 4th annual Flathead Audubon simultaneous count for Hawk Watch at both the Bad Rock Canyon and Jewel Basin Hawk Watch sites. If weather permits, we will compare our observations for Hawk Watch at both Bad Rock Canyon and Jewel Basin Hawk Watch sites in real time.
Bring binoculars, scopes, chairs and appropriate clothing. Contact Kathy Ross at 837-3837 for more information or just stop by during the afternoon. You may also volunteer with the Jewel Basin Hawk Watch. If neither of these options works for you, stop by the House of Mystery Fishing Access Site any time on your own and you will likely see Golden Eagles and other raptors cross Bad Rock Canyon throughout the month of October. We hope you will be able to enjoy this incredible experience!
