The Allegheny Front Hawk Watch is now open for the Spring Migration Count
As of 3/18/13, access to the hawk watch has improved, but with the continuation of Winter weather, getting to the site may become challenging again. We have not been able to get bathroom facilities on site yet. Please plan your visit accordingly.
The results of our hawk migration counts are posted on HMANA's hawcount.org website.

Africa Safari and Australian Birding Slide Shows
Some of our members were able to go on a safari to Africa and they produced a slide show of their trip. They have given us a copy of the slide show to share on the web. Click here to go to a page where you can download the slide show or view a QT movie of the slide show.
