Great Lakes Migratory Birds

Recently, we asked visitors at a farmer's market in Lansing, Michigan all about migratory birds. We got some really great answers. Think you know about migratory birds? Watch the video and take the quiz!

Birds are a priceless part of our heritage. Our feathered friends are not only a delight to observe, classify and photograph, but they also serve as bellwethers of our natural and cultural health. Millions of birds migrate through the Great Lakes every year, using wetlands, forests, shoreline and more than 32,000 islands as stopover sites. But these habitats and others are under increasing pressure from climate change, habitat loss and other stressors. We have never seen a more urgent time than now to support migratory birds — for the protection of their future, as well as our own.
