This trip is designed for those who may have difficulty walking trails or who prefer to view birds from the comfort of a cozy van. We will identify birds, their songs and habitats along the way. With minimal traffic and lots of out of the way places, the island is ideal for this type of birding adventure. You’ll be amazed what can be seen with no need to leave the van.

Event Details

About the leaders for this Field Trip:

The Grabills have dedicated countless hours to developing beginning birders with their “Beaver Island Group” program through Fremont Middle School. Most of Terry’s introductory birding experiences happened on Beaver Island while he was a Central Michigan University student studying at the CMU Biological Station on Beaver in 1989.  He then discovered that there were other individuals, groups even, interested in birding. He has maintained life-long relationships with these people. He and Andrea have developed young birders for 20 years with the groups they’ve brought to CMU’s Biological Station and birding events down-state.

The Beaver Island Birding Trail and Warblers on the Water events are projects of the Beaver Island Association. BIA is a volunteer organization that works to assure the environmental and economic sustainability of Beaver Island. Learn more about the BIA and keep up to date on island events at
