“A Vacation Here is a Vacation in Paradise!”

April  29, 30, & May 1, 2011
Whitefish Point Bird Observatory Spring Fling
Being the northeastern tip of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Whitefish Point is a phenomenal concentration spot for migrating raptors, waterbirds, and song birds. The surrounding land and water features create a natural corridor, funneling thousands of birds directly to the Point each spring and fall as they travel thorough the Great Lakes region. This makes for spectacular bird-watching and provides tremendous opportunities to study and monitor bird populations.
