Each fall, migrating raptors deliver a memorable show as they pass along the North Shore near Duluth.
The Hawk Ridge Nature Reserve is expecting more than 80,000 raptors this fall, in a migration that has already begun.
Other migratory birds will join the wide variety of passing raptors, the latter including sharp-shinned hawks, merlins, broad-winged hawks, northern harriers, and red-tailed hawks.
The migration will continue through November.
Naturalists and volunteers at the nature reserve will offer interpretive programs between 9 a.m.-4 p.m., beginning Saturday through Oct. 31.
The programs, including live bird demonstrations and free binoculars rental, will be offered at the Hawk Ridge Nature Reserve Main Overlook.
