The 3rd Annual Leelanau Birdfest was a huge success with participants enjoying a Digiscoping Seminar by Wayne Pope, Living with Adele Penguins by Jerry Weinrich, and a Michigan Big Year by Brian Allen. There were 28 different events scattered across the county over four days. Participants tallied 126 different species which is strong considering migration is past its peak. Highlights included an Orchard Oriole, Prairie Warblers (21 warblers in total), and both Clay-colored and Grasshopper Sparrows. Plans are already underway for 2014, thank you to everyone who participated!
