Hawk Ridge is the premier spot in the midwest, and one of the best in the United States, to view hawks during their fall migration. From August to December, bird enthusiasts descend upon Duluth from all over the world to witness thousands of hawks on the move.
Hawk Ridge hosts so many birds inpart due to Lake Superior. Hawks don’t like to fly over large bodies of water because there aren’t any thermal up drafts over cold water. Hawks rely on thermals to get altitude without expending a lot of energy. As hawks meet the lake in their migration south they funnel down the north shore in search of a way around the lake at Duluth, the westernmost tip of Lake Superior. The bluffs overlooking Duluth also create the updrafts hawks need to rise thousands of feet into the air and soar off to the south and warmer weather. Hawks can be seen in greater numbers on days when northwest to westerly winds tend to concentrate the birds along the north shore. Fewer hawks are seen from Hawk Ridge on days with precipitation or east winds.
Religion in West and West Central Africa Most African slaves came to mainland North Country from West and West Central Africa, two vast and diverse regions. African religions in these two areas varied widely in how they explained the concepts of good and evil, salvation and creation, and how they viewed prophecy and possession.

Most West Africans did not draw a formal line between the natural and the supernatural; they believed that ancestor spirits, responsive to the needs of their living relatives, could affect their daily lives. The supernatural world was revealed to human beings through various means, including revelation and divination. During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, Europeans believed in revelation as well, but Africans and Europeans disagreed about the methods of receiving revelation and what specific revelations could be taken to mean. In many communities, illness or conflict was tied to problems in the spirit world. Most cultures believed in a creator (some had multiple creators), but creators and other high gods were not as relevant in day-to-day life as more localized spiritual beings.
