Onondaga Audubon Bird Festival at Derby Hill

Hawk Watching

Onondaga Audubon invites the public to Derby Hill Bird Observatory on Saturday, May 11, for its annual Bird Festival. Live hawks, bird walks, nature activities, and kids’ face painting have been scheduled throughout the day. Westy’s Birds of Prey show will exhibit and talk about the fascinating world of raptors. A silent auction will offer bird and non-bird items, and there will be vendors with wildlife photography, native plants, artwork, and hand-crafted jewelry for sale. In addition, the popular Chomppers Smokin’ Barbeque will be on hand with their tantalizing fare. And, of course, the star performers–eagles, hawks, vultures, and other wild birds–will be gracing the skies overhead. Visit onondagaaudubon.com for a complete schedule of events and directions to Derby Hill Bird Observatory, scenically located on the east end of Lake Ontario. We hope you’ll join us and find out just how much fun hawk watching can be! Admission and parking are free.
