Tuesday Evening Birders ***UPDATED FOR MAY 30***

Meijer at Jackson & Zeeb
On May 30, the final Tuesday Evening Birders of 2017 will met at the Scio Township Carpool Lot at 6PM. These carpool spaces provided by Meijer are located in the northeast corner of the Meijer Parking lot on Jackson Road. This is the corner closest to the intersection of Jackson and Zeeb Roads. This trip will entail moderate walking, grassland birds, and the potential for ticks. Please dress/prepare accordingly.
Each Tuesday in May, leaders will scout locations and scan bird reports during the day, and then in the evening take the group to where the action is. This is a carpool event with multiple stops.
We will meet at 6:00 PM, USUALLY at the Miller Road Park & Ride (at Miller and M-14), but the meeting location is subject to change if dictated by the destination of the week. We will confirm the specific meeting spot on the Monday before the trip by posting it on our Facebook page and on the Birders email listserv, and in most cases we expect to be able to update this entry on the website as well. For example, if the primary destinations are to the east, we might choose to meet at the Plymouth Road Park & Ride. Group departure from the meeting site is at 6:15 so do plan to arrive in plenty of time to form up carpools! Please bring binoculars and scopes if you have them.
Dress for weather that will get cooler as sunset approaches. We almost never cancel so it is best to show up at the departure site to see what the plans are.
We will bird until sunset. Usually we are well away from our departure site, so it is after sunset when we return to the parking site.
See you soon!
