Peregrine Falcons migrate down the Atlantic Coast in fall, usually peaking in early October.
Meet trip leader John Hintermister at Powers Park at 6:30 a.m. and carpool to the hawk-watching platform at the north end of the park in hopes of seeing Peregrines, then drive south to Guana Dam and walk a woodland trail in search of fall warblers, tanagers, grosbeaks, and thrushes.
Bring water and bug repellent. Lunch will be at Cap’s on the Inland Waterway.
Difficulty: 2 (may involve uneven terrain one to two miles).
