MACOMB COUNTY, Mich. – There is a new resource for birders in Michigan!
A new website for the St. Clair-Macomb Birding Trail is now available for people who want to go bird watching. It was created with the coastal management grant from EGLE.
St. Clair and Macomb counties host a variety of resident and migrating birds over diverse habitats and the larger lakes, rivers, and streams. The areas also sit below major migratory routes, the Atlantic and the Mississippi flyways. Expect to see waterfowl, songbirds, shorebirds, and more at trail sites.
“This grant supports protection of coastal natural resources, encourages coastal-dependent recreation, and promotes assets and activities that contribute to the community’s sense of place,” says Weston Hillier, EGLE environmental quality analyst. “The St. Clair/Macomb Coastal Birding Trail will encourage outdoor recreation and tourism on the coast of southern Lake Huron, Lake St. Clair, and St. Clair River.”
