|Detroit Audubon's Eliza Howell Park Bird Walk|
This event will be lead by Detroit Audubon's Jim Bull. The focus of the walk is on the early Fall migrants, including Warblers. One never knows exactly when the migrating birds will be present in great numbers, but at this time of the year and of the month there are often as many species present as at the middle of the spring/May migration. Humbug is a key area for the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge, which Detroit Audubon fought to save from development. Eagles, Ssprey, water birds, and songbirds are possible here.
Because Humbug Marsh is one of the last coastal wetlands on the Detroit River, it is extremely important to waterfowl, other migratory birds, certain insects that depend on wetland, herpetofauna, and fish. Many of these species are regionally rare.
