The Annual Hawkfest Weekend at Lake Erie Metropark is a two-day celebration of the annual fall migration of birds of prey – hawks, eagles, falcons, and vultures. Each September, tens of thousands of broad-winged hawks pass over this area designated as one of the premier hawk watching sites in North America. Typically, 200,000 birds of prey migrate over Lake Erie Metropark from September through November on their southward journey. Join us for a great weekend of games, crafts, guest speakers and fun. Live birds of prey will be on hand. For more information, please call (734) 782-3956.
