Watch and listen for any migrating birds, including warblers, sparrows, and hawks as you hike to the summit of Brown Hill, the highest point on the sanctuary. At the top, we'll scan a flight path often used by hawks as they fly over Wachusett Mountain during their annual migration to Central and South America. Learn about seasonal raptor and songbird movements and how different birds accomplish this amazing feat. Expect a moderately strenuous walk of approximately three miles over hilly and sometimes rocky terrain.
