The Niagara Peninsula Hawkwatch was organized in March of 1990 to: Promote the enjoyment of hawkwatching; Educate people about hawks and hawk migration; Conduct systematic counts of hawks migrating over the Niagara Peninsula; Work for the preservation of raptors in Ontario.
Starting on March 1, and continuing every day until the middle of May, the Niagara Peninsula Hawkwatch has people stationed at Beamer Memorial Conservation Area from 8AM to 4PM Standard Time (9AM-5PM Daylight Savings Time) to identify and record every bird of prey that passes overhead. Information is freely available, there is no admission charge, and the best hours are between 10:00am and 2:00pm Standard Time (11AM-3PM Daylight Savings Time).
Yearly summaries from 2009 to the present day are available on the Niagara Peninsula Hawkwatch website. https://nphawkwatch.ca/
