"40 in 2020" Beginning Birding Series

Event Information

Event description
Learn to identify at least 40 bird species that breed in the Detroit area!

About this Event

Join Detroit Audubon for a special program designed to assist beginning (and near beginning) birders to help improve their ability to recognize and identify by sight at least 40 of the bird species that breed in the Detroit area.

The program is for those not yet fully proficient in recognizing on their own a number of the birds they encounter on nature walks. Attention will be given as well to the nesting habitat and nesting practices of these species.


* The program includes 3 field trips at 3 different locations on Saturday mornings:

April 25 -- Kensington Metropark

May 30 -- Eliza Howell Park

June 20 -- Rouge Park

* Each event is scheduled for 8:30 - 10:30 / 11:00 a.m.

* Participants are expected to take part in all three field trips. Individual field trips are not open to those not registered for all three.

* The group is limited to 20 individuals.

* Registration is required. One does not need to be a member of Detroit Audubon to participate, BUT priority will be given to Audubon members in the event that the group limit is reached.

* There is no cost for the program. There is an entrance fee -- or annual pass -- required for Kensington Metropark.

* The project co-leaders are Leonard Weber and Grace Vatai.
