Watch Hawks near Genoa
Saturday October 4, 2008

Fred Lesher will lead a hawk watch to Genoa Old Settler’s Park on Saturday, October 4, 2008. The park provides excellent viewing of Pool 8 of the Mississippi River from 150 feet above the river. Time will be 9 a.m. to at least 12 noon. Object will be watching migrant raptors such as Red-tailed Hawks, Cooper’s Hawks, Osprey, Harriers, American . Kestrels and Bald Eagles. These birds of prey and many other birds of prey species follow the Mississippi River enroute to the Texas Gulf, Central and South America to winter. Some songbirds should also be present along the bluff viewing site, and rafts of migrant waterfowl will be visible on Pool 8 of the Mississippi River.If birders don’t know where Genoa Old Settler’s Park is, meet at the entrance road to Goose Island off Hwy. 35 south of La Crosse at 8:30 AM and Fred will lead from there.
If the park entrance road is closed to vehicles for the season, we will walk up the 1/4 mile entrance road, birding up and down. There is a pit toilet and drinking water in the park if it is open. Bring a sandwich and beverage if you wish.
