There’s a secret drama unfolding in downtown Duluth!  High above the city, two peregrine falcons are raising a family on the side of a building.  Daily, they hunt, kill prey, feed their babies, and chase off predators above our heads, and most of us have no idea that this family drama is taking place!  When it comes time to fly, these babies test their wings over the city streets, Lakewalk and Lake Superior.  After learning to fly, the babies (fledglings) learn to hunt over our city…quietly and with stealth, they hunt, kill and eat their prey. 

We want to share this amazing story with you!  In a collaborative effort between the City of Duluth and the Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory, educational programs and informal interpretation will be available at Lake Place Park, above the ‘corner’ of the Lakewalk in downtown Duluth.  Naturalists will be on-site with spotting scopes and binoculars, pointing out the movements and activities of Duluth’s most visible raptor family.   

Informal interpretive programs and bird watching will be ongoing every day in Lake Place Park.   

Formal programming and group programs can be scheduled at other times and locations (including evenings) by contacting us at 218-428-6209 or peregrines@hawkridge.org.

Come on down to the Lakewalk and
join us for Peregrine Watch!
