Joint trip with State College Bird Club.  October 28 is the rain date. Trip leaders: Susan Braun and Jon Kauffman

Join State College Bird Club for a trip to Waggoner’s Gap Hawk Watch in Carlisle, PA.  October is a great time for a variety of raptors and maybe even an early golden eagle.  Bring your camera and binoculars, pack water and a lunch, bring sun protection, and dress in layers of clothing (conditions are often cooler and windier on the ridge).  A low chair or soft cushion is helpful if you don’t like sitting on rocks. There is a portable toilet at the north parking lot.  Plan to meet at Pennsylvania Military Museum in Boalsburg, PA at 8:00 am to carpool to the site, or plan to drive on your own and meet at the site. If the latter, follow these directions to Waggoner’s Gap.
