Here’s an update on the West Skyline Spring Count from Frank Nicoletti:The spring raptor count started on Febuary 22 and will continue until the end of May. Mostly Bald Eagles have been moving so far with 297 counted. There have also been 7 Golden Eagles, 2 Cooper's Hawks and an adult dark Rough-legged Hawk. Weather is looking good for migration starting on Sunday 3/7 through Tuesday 3/9, ahead of an approaching front, and should provide us with our first triple digit flights. The count averages almost 30,000 raptors each spring. If interested in watching this spectacular flight, which occurs in west Duluth below Enger Tower or Thompson Hill, please check out our website at for more information on the count and location. Hope to see you out there!Frank NicolettiSpring Count Director ... See MoreSee Less
