Birders return to Washington Island for festival

You can help try to top last year’s number of 146 species seen at this year’s Washington Island Birding Festival beginning on Thursday. Limited to just 60 registrants, birders will team up with professional guides to explore Washington, Plum, and Rock Island while thousands of birds fly through during their migration. Laura Waldron from the Washington Island Art and Nature Center says the timing is perfect for the festival.

The Washington Island Birding Festival, which runs May 16th-19th, includes ferry transportation to Rock and Plum Islands and other activities. You can find the full schedule and registration information online with this story.
