Hawk Ridge – A gem in Duluth

September 20, 2010

sharp-shinned hawkThis past weekend, was Hawk Weekend in Duluth, MN.  A time when hundreds, even thousands, of migrating birds pass above Duluth each day, hesitant to cross over Lake Superior on their way South.

In the brief time I was there we spotted, Osprey, Bald Eagle, Northern Harrier, Sharp-Shinned Hawk, Broad-winged Hawk (3,939 that day) and my favorite, the American Kestrel.

Duluth Pack has been a fan of birders for years with our Haversacks (perfect for bird books and binoculars). Old and new fans alike are enjoying our  Binocular Cases and Binoculars by Steiner.

If you are in the area this Fall I would recommend a trip up to Hawk Ridge!
