Saving Birds Thru Habitat’s first annual Leelanau BirdFest begins on Thursday afternoon, June 2 and ends on Sunday noon, June 5. Saving Birds Thru Habitat is located in Leelanau County, one of Michigan’s premier spring and summer birding areas. Target festival birds include Kirtland’s Warbler, Piping Plover and nesting Wood Ducks. Our event includes a visit to Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy’s Arcadia grasslands and wetlands with a host of upland species and nesting Trumpeter Swans. There is also a special field trip to a beautiful local winery for wine tasting and good birding on the grounds. Our website is now open (www.mibirdfest.org). Each field trip is limited to 15 people; those interested should sign up early.
