Hawk cliff a wonderful place off the north shores of Lake Erie for nature , fresh lake air and beautiful scenery . Lots of birders and nature photographers go here each spring summer and fall for the migration of all kinds of birds and butterfly’s . The Hawk Cliff Hawk watch is manned by a number of volunteers dedicated to the conservation of migratory raptors, passerines and Monarch butterflies of North America through scientific study, public education and appreciation of their fall migrations. Over the years the Hawk Cliff site has grown in popularity and today it is recognized as one of the prime fall migration hawk watching destinations in North America.
This area is only half an hours drive from us ! We are only a 6 minuet drive from lake Erie and one of our other favourite small port towns to go to Port Burwell !
On the cliff looking out over lake Erie !
Top of the cliffs . Lots of people have been here enjoying the beauty and the views !
There are always strange things below the cliff's in the water each year we go ! This is a sand dune .
The cliffs are beautiful but unfortunately lots of erosion has been happening over the years and the cliff wear away into the waters .
Cliffs and lake on one side farmers fields on the other . It is a lovely place to hike !
The air was hazy over parts of the lake that day !
Papa and Miggs enjoying the view !
Caught a glimpse of a Falcon soaring over the fields in the distance ! The prey birds were pretty hidden that morning and quiet !
Lots of Cliff Swallow homes left for the season and all quiet now .
Lots of wild asters at Hawk cliff and Cabbage moths of all kinds were gathering their nectar and bees to ! This year we didn’t see any Monarchs there but they may have already been through the area as I have seen lots pass through our yard the past month !
This is the beautiful country road that leads to Hawk cliff . I took photos on our way out !
And there are corn fields along the road side leading in and out . I love corn fields !
We then took a little road trip through Port Bruce one of the many lovely little towns off the shores of lake Erie !
Still lots of boaters going in and out of the harbour and fishing off the docks on a lovely Sunday morning !
This is were we spotted this guy sitting way up in those trees to the left watching over the harbour maybe he was thinking of swooping down for his breakfast when the fishermen get a bite and steal it right off their hook .
It was a lovely morning trip to Hawk cliff and to Port Bruce . On the way home we stopped every now and then to take photos . I will share more of them later we are on over load with photos from this day lol . Papa has some wonderful photos he would like to share as well just waiting for him to load them on his computer and send them over to mine lol !
So until next time my friends !
P.S I cant believe it is October already ! Happy October all !
