Seasons are changing. Festivals are everywhere. Overhead, the birds are beginning their migrations to warmer climates.
On Saturday and Sunday, September 16-17, Audubon Greenwich celebrated the fall season and annual migration of raptors during their 19th Annual Fall Festival and Hawk Watch!
Even though many of us may never notice it - the skies over Greenwich are full of activity especially as autumn comes rushing in. Every year, Audubon Greenwich counts over 20,000 hawks, eagles and other birds of prey flying over the Quaker Ridge hawk watch site. In this widely attended celebration of the fall season, Audubon Greenwich helps draw local attention to this natural phenomenon with two days of fun for all ages.
The festival this year included three raptor shows each day, music, food trucks, a climbing wall, a petting zoo, rides in a mini Tesla Radio Flyer and more.
Living Greenwich photographer Pam Grunow was on location and captured some images of this unique local event.
