This is a good place to learn and watch migrating birds. They showed us a hawk being held by a handler. I 'adopted' an owl. You get a picture of the animal and information about it. This is more of a 'donation,' but I like it. Beautiful location.

This is a great place to watch raptors and other birds as they make their migration south. At times there are interpretive guides. The view is worth the drive up there any time of year.

Local friends took me here for a visit while in Duluth. It was a chilly day, but so glad we stopped. Several eagles were soaring around and we were lucky enough to be there as they were releasing a goshawk. I got some great photos, and learned a lot about the bird, as they told you much before the release. If you are local, you can get on a list to release a bird- what an opportunity that would be! The fee for that is reasonable and goes as a donation to the observatory. Loved the views from the hill. Id stop again if in the area.
