The Hawkfest is held every year on the third weekend in September at Lake Erie Metro Park in Brownstown, Michigan. The hawks and falcon were part of the Michigan Hawking Club who have an exibit and allow everyone to photograph some of their raptors. The birds were in excellent health and the handlers were great. It's a super chance to get close to these awesome birds. There were many, many big cameras and lenses taking advantage of the generosity of the Hawking Club.
