Hawk Ridge, Duluth, Minnesota (MN)            Hawk Ridge photos

Raptors such as eagles, hawks, and falcons, usually don't fly across huge lakes such as Lake Superior because it’s hard to find places to land and enough food*. We’ve learned from a few naturalists that raptors migrate along mountain ranges and ridges from north to south, instead of flying over a large body of water. Raptors know how to use wind currents such as updrafts and thermals to soar**.
Around 100,000 raptors fly over Hawk Ridge each fall. From August through November, if the winds are right, you can see many raptors at Hawk Ridge. Hawk Ridge is an awesome place!  Check more info on Hawk Ridge < http://www.hawkridge.org/ >

Check Event, “Hawk Weekend”, Hawk Ridge, Duluth, MN, mid-September every year < http://www.hawkridge.org/ >

From noon to 1:00 p.m. on 060924, during the 2006 Hawk Weekend, we saw
around 20 raptors flying over Hawk Ridge: The raptors, which we spotted, were a few northern harriers, 5 sharp-shinned hawks, 10 bald eagles, and 6 broad-winged hawks. I had never seen northern harriers and sharp-shinned hawks before. "Really Awesome!"

Raptor
(猛禽類)--- ワシ、タカ、隼など ---  は、スペリオル湖のような大きな湖を渡ることは、普通しません。その理由は、湖の上では、休息する所も食べ物を探すのも難しいからです*Naturalist(自然専門家)の話では、Raptorは、大きな湖を渡る代わりに、北から南に伸びる山脈や尾根に沿い、渡るそうです。Raptorは、巧みに、地上での気流、updraft thermalを使い**、上昇気流に乗って滑空します。およそ100,000 羽のRaptorが、毎秋、Hawk Ridgeを通過し、南に渡ります。8月から11月まで、風向きが、良ければ、たくさんのRaptorを見ることが出来ます。Hawk Ridge is an awesome place!  Check more info on Hawk Ridge < http://www.hawkridge.org/ >
