Visit us at the Community Hall for a day full of activities and presentations. Learn about the Brockway Mountain Hawk Watch, bird friendly coffee and the raptors of Brockway. Join a bird walk or a trip up Brockway to meet the bird counters. Family fun for birders and nature lovers of all ages!
Not only is the Keweenaw Peninsula along the Central Migration Flyway, but it offers a wide variety of bird habitats. Copper Harbor itself is a quiet place of refuge for many migrating species and even sea ducks. One can view numerous water birds on Lake Superior as well as Lake Fanny Hooe and Lake Manganese. Brockway Mountain is known as “Hawk Highway” because of the huge number of migrating raptors observed from it. 17 raptor species have been spotted from the mountain. There is old growth pine forest at the Estivant Pines Nature Sanctuary, home to many nesting warblers and other songbirds and several hiking trails which offer up excellent birding opportunities. Hunter’s Point is a jump off point for many songbirds flying over Lake Superior and a great place to find woodland birds.
