Shorebirds and Waders at Pointe Mouillee State Game Area
Pointe Mouillee, on Lake Erie near the mouth of the Huron River is one of the premier destinations in the Midwest for viewing shorebirds and waders, but access is limited. Jim Fowler knows this territory as well as anyone and leads several field trips each year at this location. Usually, vehicles are restricted, but for this event, we will be allowed to bring in 4 vehicles. As a result, this trip will be limited to 24 attendees.
Preference will be given to current Washtenaw Audubon members. Confirmed participants will meet at the Pointe Mouillee SGA parking lot on Sigler Road at 8AM and from there will consolidate into 4 larger vehicles. Bring insect repellent, wear a hat and dress for weather—there is no shade or shelter at Pointe Mouillee. Bring all of the food and fluids you think you will need to sustain you for approximately five hours of birding.
Leader: Jim Fowler
