Washington Island is going to the birds in May with a special Birding Festival May 18th -20th. The first-ever Washington Island Birding Festival will give attendees the opportunity to get up close and personal with our fine feathered friends. Coordinator Chari Rutledge says registration for the event is sold out already but shares how the weekend will unfold.
Rutledge says that mid-May is considered the peak time for migration and hopes are for that popular Warbler to make an appearance. The Washington Island Birding Festival is sponsored by the Art & Nature Center, U.S. Fish & Wildlife, and the Washington Island Ferry. A link to photos and a blog of past birding events on Washington Island is below.
