Here's Grosse Pointe Audubon's fall schedule.
We look forward to seeing you at our meetings!
Sept. 18—Do Sapsuckers Really Suck Sap? Bird species got their names for a variety of reasons. It could have been for their overall color, a field mark, their call, their habitat, their behavior, or they may be named to honor a person. Don Chafant returns with a humorous program about how birds got their names.
Oct. 16—MNA Sanctuaries: Great little-known birding destinations close to home. Rachel Maranto, a Michigan Nature Association sanctuary manager will highlight several MNA sanctuaries in southeast Michigan that provide excellent birding opportunities across a variety of habitats. You will also learn how you can help MNA with bird survey efforts at these sanctuaries and our other properties statewide.
