Spring Fling 2018
April 28, 2018 - April 29, 2018
This year will mark the 30th Annual Spring Fling: WPBO’s Celebration of Bird Migration when members and their guests “migrate” to Paradise, Michigan and the Whitefish Point area to visit with old friends, both human and avian. Many activities are being planned for another refreshing weekend of birding experiences.
We are looking forward to a very special celebration of spring migration this year at Whitefish Point Bird Observatory. This year we are excited to mark some important milestones as we prepare to welcome birds and birders back for another spectacular season of birding at the Point, arguably one of Michigan’s most beloved birding destinations. Not only does 2018 mark the 30th anniversary of Spring Fling, but it also marks the 30th spring season of the official owl banding program. In honor of these achievements, our speakers, presentations, tours and other activities will highlight the uniqueness of the Point, celebrate the achievements of the observatory’s past, and explore exciting new developments in its future.
