Washington Monument State Park, Boonsboro, MD

Hi, I've heard that this historic monument near the Skycroft Conference Center in Middletown, MD is an excellent place to watch migrating raptors.. I went there for a school outdoor education field trip and it's a really nice place, but I would like more info.

It is a good spot and a comfortable one compared to other hawks watch sites in the Appalachian Mountain Range. Check out this web site:
