In 1988, Michigan Audubon received as a gift the M.E. and Gertrude Gray home and property, which later became Lake Bluff Bird Sanctuary. Atop a 100-foot-high bluff overlooking beautiful Lake Michigan, Lake Bluff Bird Sanctuary has over 1,700 feet of Lake Michigan frontage on its 75 acres located just north of Manistee. Originally landscaped as an arboretum, many notable specimens--such as California redwood, ginkgo, and two Michigan champion trees, a giant sequoia and a sycamore maple--have been preserved on the grounds surrounding the home.

What to see: Red-breasted Merganser, Common Loon, Common Goldeneye, Bald Eagle, Least Flycatcher, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Golden- and Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Veery, and Purple Finch.
