Migrating birds are creating their once-a-year excursion north to forests, prairies, streams, rivers and seashores across the United States and Canada.

Hundreds of tens of millions of birds will end together the way and southeast Michigan is one of their favourite sites to relaxation and refuel. These stopover websites are essential to the survival of migratory birds, whose journeys can span 1000’s of miles, some traveling from as far as the tropical forests of South The usa.

The a lot more we can do to supply the habitat they require all through their arduous journey, the superior we can defend their long term survival.

And we profit, as well. Migratory birds give far more than lovely plumes and melodic phone calls. Our feathered friends have a considerable favourable influence on our natural environment, economy and mental well being.
