A beautiful night with Birds & Brews!

I have to say, we couldn't have picked better weather to have Birds & Brews tonight! 71 degrees, all the windows open in the lounge area of Bailey's Pub and the fresh air flowed in. A lot of great things shared tonight - photos, video, events and must visit sanctuaries. I'm looking forward to our April 11th event with Bill Rapai speaking about his book "The Kirtland's Warbler." More details to follow in the coming weeks, so please stay tuned.

In the meantime, enjoy the photos of these smiling faces!

What is Birds & Brews?

Birds & Brews was inspired by an extraordinary birder by the name of Sharon a.k.a. Birdchick. (Check out her website:www.birdchick.com )

Our mission is to connect birders in Southeast Michigan and promote conservation efforts of Michigan Audubon. Birds & Brews is an informal gathering of birders of all abilities–if you’re interested in birds, you’re invited!
