It's that time of year again when you see folks wandering around in the woods or in fields, or even parked haphazardly along the road, staring up at the sky. Serious birders know that Michigan is a treasure trove of avian species, especially during spring migration.
For a couple of bucks, you can install a feeder or two in your back yard and watch the show from your kitchen table. But why not get yourself a pair of binoculars and a guide and get started on your "Life List" out in the field? For more information on opportunities in Michigan, you can click here.
Better still, find an experienced birder willing to take you along to discover more of the hidden wonders that bless our state. It's a gorgeous -- and brief -- time of the year. Get out there!
