Join us to look for marsh birds at Lane’s Landing in the Muskegon State Game Area. We might be a bit early, but Swamp Sparrows should be on territory in the marsh and rails should be in the area by this date. After checking out the marsh, we’ll see how the winds blows and either head over to the Muskegon Wastewater to check out the waterfowl or head to Grand Haven to check out Harbor Island and hawk watch locations to look for migrating hawks. At the Wastewater, Northern Shoveler and Ruddy Duck are likely; in Grand Haven, we could see Caspian Tern on Lake Michigan or a Peregrine Falcon at the power plant. Birders of all skills are welcome.
Leader: Steve Minard
Essentials: Meet at the Boy Scout Headquarters west off Walker Avenue NW (exit 28) just north of I-96 at 7:00 AM. We plan to bird until noon. You may want to bring a snack to hold you over until lunch.
