Benezette PA - Elk in Pennsylvania

On September 25 & 26, 2010 we went to Benezette PA to see the free roaming Elk in Pennsylvania. We have the pictures posted on facebook @ www.facebook.com/PaResearchers & on our website @ http://www.paresearchers.com/ . There are over 700 Elk in this area. They roam the streets of Benezette PA, plus the surrounding communities. Right now the elk are in their rut season and finding mates. The bull Elk are bugling to bring in the cows. If you are lucky enough to see this, you can watch the bull elk fighting for the cows.

Allegheny Front

Today we went to the Allegheny Front. It is located on the border of Somerset & Bedford counties in Pennsylvania. This is the beginning of the hawk migration. We saw 1 Bald Eagle, 1 Osprey, 1 Kestrel, 1 Coopers Hawk, numerous red tails, and lots of Turkey Vultures. Beautiful day as it was in the high 70's and the wind averaging 5 to 8 mph. Lots of sun & good company. Around 20 people were there today. This sight is sponsored by the Audobon Society.
