Tawas Bird Fest

The Biggest Little Birding Festival in the Midwest

The Michigan Audubon Tawas Point Birding Festival returns May 16-18, 2019.

Come to Michigan’s Sunrise Coast to enjoy spring birding at its best, attend presentations on the latest birding topics, hone your birding skills, and learn about avian conservation work in Michigan.

The Tawas Point Birding Festival is a Michigan Audubon Signature Event that is supported by the local chapter, AuSable Valley Audubon.

Festival participants enjoy some of the best birding in the Great Lakes region; Tawas Point is well known for high concentrations of migrating warblers during the month of May. Species highlights have included Kirtland’s Warbler, Cape May Warbler, Golden-winged Warbler, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, White-crowned Sparrow, numerous raptors, shorebirds, and more. Over 160 species were recorded during the festival weekend in 2016.
