Birders are perched on Hawks Ridge for the annual Hawk Weekend Festival.

Hawk Ridge Nature Reserve is one of North America’s best places to watch migrating birds. Bird Lovers travel to Duluth each year to watch birds fly by in big numbers.

Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory Education Director, Clinton Nienhaus says, "To take a look and watch this mastery of flights, but something I think every little kid you'll talk to wants to do."

The event includes Workshops, presentations, social gatherings and a member meeting.
