Stone Mountain Hawkwatch


Join Shaver’s Creek Raptor Center Director, Jason Beale, for an early fall hawk watch on Stone Mountain. Late September offers the potential for great raptor diversity, including buteos, accipiters, and falcons. In addition to Neotropical songbirds, Monarchs and several dragonfly species also use the ridge to migrate. The hawk watch platform and vista is located along the Great Eastern Trail and is very scenic with views of both Stone & Big Valley, so bring your camera and binoculars. Pack a lunch, bring sun protection, and dress in layers as weather on the ridge is often colder and windier than in the valleys. Seating is limited on the platform, so packable chairs are recommended. Come to the Stone Mountain Hawk Watch anytime between 10am and 3pm to participate in this event. Contact field trip coordinator, Kristin Joivell, with any questions you may have at (814)386-6267.
