This trip has been canceled. We hope to bring this opportunity back in 2021.

Washtenaw Audubon would like to invite you to join us on another international field trip this year; this time to the beautiful country of New Zealand!  We will be traveling and birding for 13 days (August 3-15, 2020) with Wrybill Birding Tours. We look forward to seeing 115+ species of birds, including most of the endemics only found there. Highlights are 3 species of Penguins, 3 species of Kiwis, some of the rarest shorebirds in the world and a large number of seabirds on multiple pelagic trips, including enormous Albatrosses seen at arms-length. If you are interested in joining us or just simply asking questions or getting more information, please contact  Bryn Martin at brynmartin446@gmail.com. Bryn can send you a very detailed itinerary with pricing, as well as a checklist of birds we plan/hope to see. We are limited to 9 participants and the trip is already filled over half-way, so let us know ASAP if you want to be included! Hope you can join us.

Swift Nights Out

We are looking for volunteers for our Fourth Annual Ann Arbor city-wide Chimney Swift count, August 14-16, 2020. Watching Chimney Swifts enter their roosts at dusk is a spectacular sight. Volunteers will choose a known Chimney Swift roosting location and stake it out before dusk, counting the Swifts as they enter the chimney, as darkness falls. You can sign up for one night/one location at a time, or count each night of the weekend. Chimney Swifts are in steep decline across North America, so let's help find out how they are doing in our city. Bring your friends along, to show them how these very cool aerial insectivores share our city with us.

We will post a link to sign up closer to the event; come back here to sign up!

Email leaders Juliet Berger and Johannes Postma with your results after the survey, and post it on eBird if you have an account. 

NOTE: Occasionally the Swifts will not use a particular location on a given night due to a predator such as a Cooper's Hawk, or another issue. In that case, "no Swifts" will still be good information for us!
