Sandhill Crane Field Trip

November 5 @ 3:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Leaders: Detroit Audubon & Jackson Audubon
Fee: $18 General Admission, $12 for Detroit Audubon Chapter members 

Join Detroit Audubon and Jackson Audubon Society at 3:30 p.m. for a short walk through a restored native prairie which not only are full of flowers but sometimes some birding surprises like LeConte’s Sparrow, then join us at 5pm on the hill to watch up to 2,000 Sandhill Cranes fly in to the marsh to roost for the night.

Even if you cannot walk you can stay to watch from the hill where there are benches (handicappers can drive right to the site) as up to 2000 Sandhill Cranes fly in to roost in the marsh for the night as they have been doing since the last ice age. Dress warmly, as it can be cold. A blanket or lawn chair to sit on would come in handy.
