Birding Update

Now that it is finally beginning to feel like summer, Wild Birds Unlimited regrets to inform you that fall migration is now underway. As we approach August and September you will see an increase in feeder activity. Some birds are already starting to migrate and some are starting to fatten up in anticipation of the journey. You may even start to see some of the Northern birds that only winter in mid-Michigan.

Click HERE to watch a full episode of PBS’s NATURE which shows how seasonal changes compel a wide variety of creatures, from whooper swans to monarch butterflies, to begin their epic migrations in the spring and fall covering thousands of miles and employing ingenious methods to reach their destinations.
