Hawk Week 2020

September 28 - October 4 — Enjoy a week-long celebration of 20+ online events from wherever you are!

The risk of COVID-19 has brought many things to a halt and canceled our 2020 Fall Festival & Hawk Watch, but it can't stop the amazing annual fall raptor migration! Join Greenwich Audubon Center, and friends around the globe, as we celebrate this remarkable natural phenomenon.

Virtual Hawk Week (September 28 - October 4) is set to include live updates from our Quaker Ridge Hawk Watch site, rehabilitated bird releases, programs featuring special guests from around the region (and internationally!), and opportunities to learn about and view birds of prey. Check out our exciting online events below. To view all our events in chronological order, visit our events page at greenwich.audubon.org/events.
