Common Nighthawk watches will be held Tuesday and Wednesday evenings (Aug. 29-30) @ Forest Beach Migratory Preserve
The Western Great Lakes Bird and Bat Observatory invites you to participate with our staff each evening beginning at 6:50 p.m. at the Bill Cowart Memorial Raptor Watch platform, at Forest Beach Migratory Preserve along Lake Michgan in northern Ozaukee County.
In the parking lot just south of our building at 4970 Country Club Rd, Port Washington,, there will be a map posted at the kiosk, with the location of the raptor watch platform (for anyone who has never been here before).
Large flights of nighthawks have already been seen in areas north of us, and this last week of August is usually the peak time at our location. Other migrating species may also be seen.
