Birds & Brews was inspired by an extraordinary birder by the name of Sharon a.k.a. Birdchick. (Check out her website: www.birdchick.com ) Birdchick is a National Park Ranger in Minnesota, writes for several publications including WildBird Magazine, Birding Business and Outdoor News and also travels to nature festivals and events and give workshops on digiscoping, attracting birds, a tech guide to birding and beekeeping.
I read her blog often and enjoyed reading about her Birds & Beers group which she describes as "an informal gathering of birders of all abilities–if you’re interested in birds, you’re invited." Birdchick was generous enough to let me copy her idea - so a big hearty thank you to Birdchick!
So here come's the Michigan version. Our inaugural Birds & Brews event will be scheduled in February. Stay tuned!
