Nighthawk Watch Starts Tonight

Monday, August 20, 2018,

Join Four Harbors Audubon Society (FHAS) as it kicks off, in association with the Frank Melville Memorial Park, its second annual “Frank Melville Stone Bridge Nighthawk Watch” on August 20, 2018 at 4:30 p.m. at the Red Barn in the park. 

John Turner,  FHAS Conservation Chair, will present a short informational program on the “Four W’s” of the Nighthawk Watch. Come learn about the migration of the Common Nighthawk and how the species ties Long Island to North America, and North America with the rest of the Western hemisphere. After the program we’ll stroll to the stone bridge to begin the watch.

Don’t worry!  If you cannot join us for our kickoff on the 20th, come any evening afterwards, from 5:30 p.m. until dusk through early October.  See you at the Stone Bridge!

Frank Melville Memorial Park is located at One Old Field Road, Setauket, NY
