Been birding for 10 years, somehow didn't hear about Hawkcliff until last year.

So much to see here. Devoted birders love this place and I can see why. Had a fabulous time here with a friend who is a birder.

One of the best migration viewing spots for raptors in North America. Thousands and thousands of sightings of many species of hawks, eagles and many other fall migrants. A must do for any birders.

We have recently moved to the area and with my husband's recently purchased camera, we so enjoyed the view, the helpful volunteers and of course the birds! We will be back again.

Located on the bluffs over Lake Erie. Always a great spot for watching raptors soar. Difficult terrain but well worth the effort.

The time to go is during the raptor migration! Bird lovers rejoice at these sights. The place itself merits a very short visit otherwise.
