You no doubt have seen views of Manhattan from Eagle Rock Reservation. And you've seen hawks, even if you couldn't tell a kite from a sharpie. But if you haven't climbed the incredibly steep, narrow stairs to the Montclair Hawk Watch on Edgecliff Road and stepped onto a ledge that feels worthy of receiving the Ten Commandments, you haven't really seen the views and the hawks that Montclair has to offer.
Annette went back in 2006. Fran and I went yesterday. Although the sky was a piercing blue it seemed to the sky experts we encountered a little hazy. The clouds, though, were good, as Hawk Watch coordinator Else Greenstone pointed out. It makes it easier to spot the birds.
