Birding around Little Traverse Bay

Join Petoskey Audubon President Darrell Lawson, and a Little Traverse Conservancy staff member at 8:45 a.m. on Saturday Oct. 20 as we caravan our way around Little Traverse Bay in search of migrating birds!

Starting in Harbor Springs and ending at East Park in Bay Harbor, we’ll spend about 3 hours looking for geese, ducks, loons, grebes gulls, and other seasonal and resident birds.

We will be birding at 6 or 7 sites, the first of which involves some flat walking.

Dress for the weather.

Unlike previous years, please plan on meeting at the Harbor Spring Marina public parking lot.

We will then carpool to the Raunecker Nature Preserve trailhead at the base of Bull Moose Hill.

The leader will have a scope, but please bring yours, if you have one.

Optional lunch afterwards at one of Petoskey’s downtown restaurants.

Rain-date is Sun. Oct. 21.
