Hawk Ridge naturalist Frank Nicoletti, left, and volunteer bird counter Dave Carman had their eyes and optics trained on the skies over Hawk Ridge Wednesday morning as they search for migrating raptors during the annual fall migration count. Last year, more than 80,000 raptors flew over the ridge during the fall migration. The public is invited to attend the annual Hawk Ridge weekend next Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 15-16. The weekend features lots of hawk watching, interpretive hikes, banded hawks on display, early morning birding field trips and an optics display, to name a few. Refreshments will also be available. For more information, call Debbie Waters, naturalist at Hawk Ridge at 525-1853. Bring binoculars.
