Bird Watching

Bird watchers are an anxious breed in the spring as they await the spring migration when many species of birds wing their way to nesting grounds in the county. High on their list is Michigan’s state bird, the robin, as well as other species including cardinals, sandpipers, mourning doves and waterfowl. Among favorite bird watching sites are the Fortune Lakes, where a 2-mile nature trail and the little peninsula afford good views of warblers, loons and eagles. Bring your camera and binoculars to view nesting pairs, but be sure to keep your distance.
