Spring Birding Tours at Michigan's Wetland Wonders

Sandhill CraneCelebrate spring and explore Michigans Wetland Wonders with a birding tour at one of the Department of Natural Resources' seven managed waterfowl areas in April and May. Nothing says spring like the conk-a-ree call of a red-winged blackbird or the raucous sounds of a sandhill crane.

Highlights of the birding tours may include diving and dabbling ducks in full breeding plumage, trumpeter and tundra swans, osprey, bald eagles, sandhill cranes and much more. The tours, led by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) wildlife biologists and technicians, will include a "sneak peek" driving tour into refuge areas that are normally closed.

The birding tours will take place at the seven premier managed waterfowl areas located in Michigans Wetland Wonders throughout the southern portion of the state.
