  LOCATION     Hawk Hill is located just north of San Francisco, California in the Marin Headlands.  
  DETAILS     Take binoculars and a lunch, Often there are bird counters at work so you can get expert information.  The raptors do not like to fly over open water. They fly down from the north following the coast line and suddenly find they are on the peninsula, Golden Gate Bridge and open water ahead of them, so they circle and circle getting up courage and wing strength before plunging across.
