Franklin Mountain Hawkwatch



The Franklin Mt. Hawkwatch, located on the Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society Sanctuary overlooking Oneonta, NY, is particularly noted for late fall season flights of Red-tailed Hawks and Golden Eagles. Franklin Mt. provides a panoramic view of the Susquehanna River valley and surrounding hills of Otsego and Delaware Counties. In addition to the hawkwatch, the Audubon Sanctuary provides marked hiking trails through a variety of habitats.
