From the Duluth News Tribune - September 10, 2017

Hawk Weekend - the annual celebration of the hawk migration at Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory in Duluth - will take place Friday through Sunday. The weekend includes hawk-watching, field trips, programs and a natural history train excursion. A fee is charged for some activities.

The event is held annually at a time when the peak of the raptor migration over Duluth typically occurs. Hawk-watching at Hawk Ridge is free, and the Hawk Ridge staff is on duty to describe the hawk flight. 

The main overlook is about one mile east of Glenwood Street on Skyline Parkway. For more information, go to (218) 428-6209.
