Tawas Point is well-known for a high concentration of birds during May. Kirtland's Warbler, Scarlet Tanager (shown here) and Orchard Oriole are among the more than 300 species seen here. Held in cooperation with the AuSable Valley Audubon, the birding festival brings you conservation and birding displays and insightful presentations from birding experts.

  • On Saturday, see a "Birds of Prey" program presented by DeGraaf Nature Center and sponsored by the Friends of Tawas Point. Joe Rogers returns with great horned owls, vultures, falcons and other birds.
     
  • Thursday through Saturday, between noon and 4 p.m. (except during the "Birds of Prey" presentation), enjoy a tour of Tawas Point Lighthouse, only $2 per person.
This event is free of charge, although a Michigan State Parks Recreation Passport is required for park entry. For more information, please send us an e-mail or telephone (989) 362‑5658.
