Duluth has one of the best hawk migrating areas in the country. Lots of people from around the country to observe. On Sept. 15th of 2003 a record number of 102,329 broadwing hawks were counted. I was sitting in the back yard that day and about one thirty in the afternoon I happened to look skyward and thought I was seeing something high up so went in the house for a set of binoculars and what I saw was almost beyond belief. At high altitude were thousand upon thousands of broadwings and they kept coming for quite awhile. I shall never forget that sight. they were heading south of course. Andy

Thanks Boily. I thought I would mention why Duluths Hawk Ridge is good. Hawks and Owls do not like to migrate over large bodys of water like Lake Superior so they follow the ridge line down the north shore of Lake Superior from Canada and once they reach Duluth they have come to the end of the lake so then they can head south over land.
