Mt. Peter Hawk Watch begins

Visit Mount Peter this fall and witness one of the most spectacular migrations in the country. Fyke members can help with the count or just keep a lonely hawk watcher company. Best time to visit is between September 11 and 21 for "kettles" of Broad-winged Hawks climbing thermals up to the clouds. Mid to late October the Sharp-shinned and Cooper's Hawks flap and glide past the lookout following the migrant songbirds, and the end of October through November 15, the big guys come through - Red-shouldered and Red-tailed Hawks. Bald Eagles, Osprey, Peregrines, Northern Harriers, and Osprey are possible any time. And don't forget the homemade ice cream available at the Creamery below the lookout. The watch begins September 1, 2022, and continues daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. until November 15. Contact Judy Cinquina at judycinq@optonline.net to volunteer or for more information.

NPC Field Trips

The Nature Program Cooperative (NPC) is a collaboration between over a dozen local organizations like Fyke that provide quality nature programs. Throughout the year, NPC members host activities and programs to which all group members are invited. When applicable, member discounts will apply to NPC partner members and supporters. For example, if Tenafly Nature Center hosts an event, members of all other NPC groups pay TNC's member rate. For more details, please see the NPC website at www.natureprogam.org.
