See the real raptors!
The Cape Henlopen Hawk Watch (CHHW) operation every Fall (September 1 to November 30). CHHW is organized under the Hawk Migration Association of North America. Volunteers, many of them members of the Sussex County Bird Club, count and report the numbers of passing raptors, including : Red-Tailed Hawks, Red Shouldered Hawks, Broad Winged Hawks, Cooper’s Hawks, Sharp Shinned Hawks, Bald and Golden Eagles, Turkey Vultures, Black Vultures, Kestrels, Merlins, and Peregrine Falcons. Now and then something out of the ordinary may appear, such as a Mississippi Kite or a Swallow Tailed Kite.

IInterested in volunteering?
The Hawk Watch operates under a Fish & Wildlife grant that is contingent in part on the Hawk Watch’s ability to solicit volunteer hours. The Friends supports this group and a number of its members also volunteer their time at The Hawk Watch. We always looking for more people to come learn, enjoy and help.
