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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
