This Kestrel was captured as she passed through Duluth's, "Highway in the Sky" Each year 100,000 raptors are spotted from Hawk Ridge. Lake Superior creates the perfect flyway. It forces migrants reluctant to fly across large bodies of water to head Southwest along the scenic North Shore. The last photo was taken just before the bird was released to finish her journey South. http://www.hawkridge.org/
After watching the hawks (and the beautiful view of lake Superior) we started our own journey. 2010's magical mushroom tour. Check it out.
