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.
