Winter Waterfowl ID

Each fall and winter hundreds of thousands of ducks descend on the Great Lakes – making winter the perfect season for waterfowl birding in Michigan.
Join MI Birds, a public outreach program from Audubon Great Lakes and Michigan Department of Natural Resources, for “Winter Waterfowl ID,” a free virtual event presented in partnership with Detroit Audubon, Ducks Unlimited, and the River Raisin Institute.

Discover the best places to spot waterfowl in Michigan this winter, how to identify them by species, and what we can do to help conserve birds and the places they need to thrive.
Special guest speakers will include:
• Erin Rowan, Audubon Great Lakes, Senior Conservation Associate
• Brittany Leick, River Raisin Institute, Program Coordinator
• Chris Sebastian, Ducks Unlimited, Public Affairs Coordinator

It’s sure to be a “wonder-fowl” time!

The event will also be LIVE streamed on our Facebook page HERE.
