We had great weather for our June 13th outing to the Rouge River Bird Observatory! Not too hot and not too cool. A group of 14 met on the U of M Dearborn campus to take a bird walk led by Julie Craves, supervisor of avian research and contributing editor to BirdWatching magazine. (Her credential list goes on forever! We were extremely lucky to have her lead us!)
The trails are easy to walk at the Rouge River Bird Observatory. The first bird we saw was the Blue Heron flying overhead.
Other birds seen included the Baltimore Oriole, Red-eyed Vireo, Downy Woodpecker, Cedar Waxwings, and much more!
We saw a lovely Canadian Geese family feeding out in the field.
Me and Julie!
Afterwards, the Birds & Brews group headed over to Bailey's Pub for a brew and good conversation. A good time was had by all! Looking forward to the next Birds & Brews!
