|Fall Shorebirds At Muskegon Wastewater Area With Grand Rapids Audubon|
Join Grand Rapids Audubon on this trip which will focus on clues to identifying migrating shorebirds that are primarily in their Winter plumage. With the challenges of dwindling bird numbers, this location is a consistent stopover for shorebirds and other birds migrating south. You will be able to spend as much time as needed to use binoculars and spotting scopes to compare and evaluate shorebirds at relatively close proximity. In past years, they have seen seven “you can count on them” species and a variety of seven or more others, covering plovers, dowitchers, phalarope, snipe and all sizes, from Greater Yellowlegs to the Least Sandpiper. Of course, you can plan on viewing a collection of waterfowl and field birds as well.
Meet at the main entrance to the Muskegon Wastewater on the East side of Maple Island Road (a mile or so north of Apple Avenue). Bring binoculars, scope (if you have one), drinks and snacks as needed. Call Becky Kuhn if you get lost or want to meet later in the morning: (616) 437-9205.
