Come join us at this upcoming event

Festival of Hawks

Day 3 of 4

Join experts from the Holiday Beach Migration Observatory for this natural spectacle. Watch thousands of birds of prey flying overheard. Take in free programs hosted by local experts covering a wide range of birding and nature related topics, and see live hawks and owls up close. A great family event for experts and amateurs alike.

HBMO experts will be on-site conducting hawk banding and adoptions. Event goers will get up close and personal to a variety of raptors as experts measure, tag, and then release these birds back into the wild. Visitors will also be in awe at the live raptor display of Kingsport Environmental, a local organization that rescues and rehabilitates raptors and promotes falconry through education programs.

Programming information will be available soon. Programs are free with the festival admission fee of $15 per vehicle.
