TAWAS POINT MIGRATION HISTORY
Tawas Point, located on the Northeast Michigan
shore of Lake Huron is a natural birding hot spot in
the Spring as migrating birds follow the shoreline
to summer nesting habitats. Songbirds, water birds
and raptors all may be seen at this location and
throughout loco County principally in May.
Since 2006, uSable Valley Audubon has hosted a
Spring birding event to celebrate nature with
fellow birding enthusiasts. This event has attracted
participants from across the US and internationally.
Michigan Audubon promoted and organized this
event for many years. The expertise provided and
their depth of involvement with the local chapter
was a huge influence on its continued success.
Since 2018 the local chapter, uSable Valley
Audubon has been the sole organizing entity.
The present event at Tawas Point State Park offers
casual birding for birders of all levels. Participants
will find friendly and helpful local birders available
at various key areas to interact one-on-one and to
answer questions about local amenities, other
nearby hot spots, and bird identification.
