Spring Birding Tours at Wetland Wonders
Michigan Ag Connection - 03/13/2018

Nothing says spring like the "conk-a-ree" call of a red-winged blackbird or the raucous sounds of a sandhill crane. Celebrate spring and explore Michigan's wetlands with a birding tour at one of the Wetland Wonders -- or managed waterfowl areas -- around the state.

Highlights of the birding tours may include diving and dabbling ducks in full breeding plumage, trumpeter and tundra swans, osprey, bald eagles, sandhill cranes, and many others. Michigan Department of Natural Resources wildlife staff members and volunteers from Ducks Unlimited and Audubon Clubs will lead the tours, which may include a "sneak peek" driving tour into refuge areas that normally are closed.

The birding tours will be held on the following dates:

March 17 at 8 a.m. -- St. Clair Flats State Wildlife Area, 3857 Columbine Road, Harsens Island; 810-748-9504

March 24 at 9 a.m. -- Fish Point State Game Area, 7750 Ringle Road, Unionville; 989-674-2511
