We had heard this was a great place to see live birds up close so we drove up there. It was true, we seen so many birds up there up close. If you like hawks this is a must see.
We saw a lot and enjoyed it. Clear but windy is best to see birds of all kinds. The locals up there were very kind and identified the birds when we had trouble. Great view of the city and lake too.
Having heard of Hawk's Ridge over the years, we were happy to get here on this visit, even though it was too early for Fall Migration. (We did spy a Great Horned Owl!) The view of Duluth is wonderful. Sad to see all the trees down from the summer storms.
My 6 and 10 year old have went here a few times since it is only about 2 miles from home. Great hike and climb. It is pretty comical to see people with a walking pole in each hand though. As if its not possible to walk without a pole in each hand! If a 6 and 10 year old... 更多
We go up to Hawk Ridge every year to watch the raptors migrate. LOVE it. The people running the education are amazing. Fun to watch the people is as much as much fun as watching the birds!!

The view of Lake Superior is spectacular and if you are there in September and the conditions are right you could see over 30,000 birds of prey. This is a... 更多

The bird count numbers are much higher earlier in the fall, but the species moving through at that time are the smaller raptors. There were several dozen visitors on hand, and 8-10 volunteers. Several volunteers were involved in the serious business of counting the birds, a couple were... 更多
This is an opportunity not to be missed--particularly in the fall when birds are flying south. There are plenty of chances during that time to talk with the folks who are counting the birds flying over head and learn more about the birds. Excellent and knowledgable volunteers to answer questions. A family friendly place to go. Also an excellent venue... 更多
I have seen more raptors there during the migration than most see in a lifetime. Timing and weather, especially the wind are factors. Peak times are generally in the last part of September when thousands of birds are moving. Check out the website at hawkridge.org.
