Whitefish Point Bird Observatory

Whitefish Point Bird Observatory

Whitefish Point is a narrow peninsula that reaches several miles into Lake Superior toward Canada. During spring and fall, Whitefish Point is one of the best birding sites in Michigan. Hawks and finches start things off in mid-March and peak in late April. In spring Whitefish Point is one of the best sites in the country for owl viewing. Watch for Boreal, great gray, great- horned, short-eared, and long-eared owls. May brings concentrations of blue jays, grosbeaks, and waterfowl. Red-throated and common loons, scoters, and whimbrels are commonly seen. If the weather holds, viewing remains good until mid-November.
