Event Type

Join the Pennsylvania Society for Ornithology (PSO) and Chad Kauffman ([email protected]) at this hawk watch, located in Mifflin County, Pennsylvania at the summit of Jacks Mountain Road. (See their website for exact location description and more.) They tell us: “Anyone is welcome, it is free to join us. You can stay all day or come and go as you please. This is an easy one to get to, and you can sit in your car, near your car in lawn chairs or on the hill if you wish. Beautiful views of both sides of the mountain with Mifflin County on both sides. No facilities available at this hawk watch, but you can be in Belleville within a few minutes. Sometimes you can see hang gliders taking off from this location as well. It has been known to have kettles of broad wings lifting on the same thermals as the gliders. Binoculars are really all that is needed, but feel free to bring your scope. Some scopes are usually there from the hawk watchers. We highly recommend protection from the sun as well.”
