If you're a visitor to our area or a curious nearby resident, join us at one of our monthly meetings or call (or e-mail) one of our Contacts for club information or about birding in the Macomb County area.

Our meetings comprise interesting programs, recent area bird sightings, a short business meeting, and, of course, refreshments (key to any birder's agenda). Our meetings and field trips are open to the public. We don't charge fees unless noted on the schedule. So feel free to visit us and see what we're all about.

21st Annual Birdathon for Wildlife Recovery Association

It’s hard to believe that this Birdathon is entering its third decade, but this year marks the 21st year that Macomb Audubon has sponsored this fun event to help the Wildlife Recovery Association (WRA). Over the years, we have collected more than $11,000. And every dollar has been put to good use! The Birdathon will be held again to coincide with the North American Migration Count on the weekend of May 11-13, 2018. Here is the important part: Your pledges of either cents-per-species or flat donations help WRA. If you pledge 10 cents a species, you would owe somewhere around $17.50. But this year, we are all pushing it even more. Also check out their facebook page, or the Macomb Audubon Birdathon Info to send your support to Joe Rogers and the WRA. The WRA is devoted to helping injured raptors, in hopes of releasing them in the wild. Also, Joe Rogers, WRA’s director, had devoted much of his life to educating in his unique, high-energy way in his ever evolving program. The WRA needs your help to keep the programs going. Please pledge either by mail or at the monthly membership meeting.


Ruth Glass has published a Spring Bird Walks schedule for 2018! Most walks are 4th Saturdays of each month from March through May, with two bonus activities in the first half of May during what should be an exciting migration. Check out the detailed schedule from Ruth, or search the Huron-Clinton Metroparks Website for more info.
