Been birding for 10 years, somehow didn't hear about Hawkcliff until last year. We went out several days; saw some fantastic kettles (missed the big day though) and lots of hawks, even lots of migrating smaller birds.

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.

There s really not so much to do there except for that only weekend per year (it seems) in September when they have hawks shows. They put them in little tubes and then take them out of their demonstrating the birds and talking about its features, and then they the volunteers from the visitor crowd release them.

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

Besides an amazing view, this is one of THE places for viewing migration of the hawks and other birds.

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