A new tour for the richest birding in the Midwest with plenty of specialty birds from Kirtland's Warbler to boreal species.

This new spring-migration itinerary winds its way through the less-busy sides of Michigan at the peak season. We'll start along the southern Lake Michigan coast (guide Cory Gregory's former haunts), continue through the grasslands of western Michigan, proceed north to the boreal forests and bogs of the Upper Peninsula, and then return south along the scenic Lake Huron coastline.

The wide range of habitats and latitudes that Michigan hosts (not rivaled by any other Midwestern state) yields an excellent variety of breeding and migrating songbirds. From southern breeding species like Louisiana Waterthrush, Yellow-throated Warbler, and Cerulean Warblers to northern breeders like Palm Warbler, Tennessee Warbler, and even Connecticut Warbler, this tour should run up an impressive variety of warblers. Of course, a main feature will be spending a day around Kirtland's Warblers, too.

With a planned visit to the Upper Peninsula, we add a suite of targets such as Boreal Chickadee, Gray Jay, Black-backed Woodpecker, Sharp-tailed Grouse, and breeding loons and swans. To round out our birding, the wide range of grasslands we'll visit will bring more Midwestern specialties such as Henslow's Sparrow, Sedge Wren, Bobolink, and Upland Sandpiper. We'll also spend two nights near Tawas Point on the Lake Huron coastline, a site that easily ranks as one of the premier Midwestern migration hotspots.
