8:30-10 a.m. AND 12:30-2 p.m.

Did you know that the ring-necked pheasant has been a resident species of Detroit for decades? Join OAC staff and Detroit Audubon for a walk along the riverfront and other areas around the OAC to look and listen for this beautiful Detroit grassland bird. We'll discuss how pheasants may have gotten here and why they have stayed, and we'll also look for any other migrant birds passing through for the season. Limited binoculars will be available for loan.

As an extra bonus, join us for a showing of the award-winning documentary short "Pheasants of Detroit" by Diane Cheklich and Diane Weiss at the conclusion of our walk.

This is a free outdoor program. The afternoon film showing takes place during regular operating hours; admission fees apply for building access.

Preregistration required.
