The North Shore is one of the best places in all of the U.S. and Canada to see the spring and fall bird migration, and Grand Superior Lodge sits in the heart of the pathway.
Lake Superior’s shoreline is a bird highway. Summer nesters begin arriving as early as April with massive flocks flying over the last few weeks of May. During this time, keep an eye out for soaring Bald Eagles, and if you’re lucky, a Peregrine Falcon. While loons do not nest on the big lake, you will see Minnesota’s state bird travel north in the spring and south in the fall. We highly recommend you visit nearby Gooseberry Falls State Parks (a mere two miles up the road), which hosts over 150 different bird species. The park provides lakeshore, river mouth, forest and inland ridge habitat making it a bird watchers paradise.
