New Horton Hawk Watch Site
Coordinates: Lat 45.688901°N, Long 64.710875°W
Description: The unassuming little parking lot at the New Horton Church offers an AMAZING VIEW of the surrounding area atop the New Horton Ridge. This is where naturalists have been observing hawk and sea duck migration in March and April for over a decade.
Nature Notes: This site offers a superb, yet not well-known view of New Horton Ridge, as well as the New Horton Marsh section of Shepody NWA and much of the surrounding area, including a really nice view of the uppermost northern side of the Bay of Fundy. This is also a great migration watch site in March and April, where one can observe migrating hawks, eagles, sea ducks, cormorants and more.
