Poke-O-Moonshine Day Use Area

Birding

The rugged cliffs of Poke-O-Moonshine Mountain are favorite nesting places of the local peregine falcons. Climbing the cliffs is off-limits during nesting season. Check with the state department of Environmental Conservation for climbing closures, as routes open as nesting sites are established and by late summer most routes are open again. Many climbers also volunteer to monitor falcon nesting sites in a citizen science collaboration with the DEC.

Also look for migrating hawks and lively flocks of ravens at this popular hiking and climbing destination.
