Eyes on the Skies – An Overview of Migration and Raptors

45 minutes

Hawk Ridge has a fascinating history, from gunner’s lair to birdwatcher’s paradise. Over 1,000 raptors per day fly past Hawk Ridge each fall for many reasons, one of which is Lake Superior. These migrating raptors take advantage of the geology of the North Shore to migrate more efficiently. As the birds migrate past Hawk Ridge, they provide an opportunity for bird research, education, and recreation.
