BIRD ALERT: Rob Fanning's Dickcissel

BEYOND: Mount Peter Hawk Watch


One of the great hawk watches in these parts is Mount Peter, located on Bellvale Mountain between Greenwood Lake and Warwick, N.Y. on Route 17A.
There's some excellent opportunities for raptor watching, and the view of the Warwick Valley is excellent.  It was started by Stiles Thomas and has been ably run for years and years by Judy Cinquina.
   This is the watch's 51st autumn in operation, and the Fyke Nature Association has all-day field trip (9 a.
m. to 5 p.m.) this Saturday, during prime migrating time for broad-winged hawks.

   If you have never been, the place is definitely worth a trip! If you've been already, then you know for sure.
