CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE

All feld trips have been canceled until further notice. We will continue to asses the situation and update this space accordingly. Going outside and enjoying nature is a great way to relieve stress and pass these trying times. We encourage you to do so while practicing responsible social distancing.

Our in-person meetings at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens have been suspended until the University allows gatherings to take place. To view our online Zoom programs, you will need access to an internet-capable computer, phone, or similar device. An announcement of the web address to view the program will be on our web site, Facebook page, and on the Birders email list a few days before the program. We may also add more online programs for July and August, which will be announced on the same internet platforms.

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 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. 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.
