Overview

Located adjacent to Whitefish Point National Wildlife Refuge in Paradise, Michigan, the Whitefish Point Bird Observatory (WPBO) documents the chronology and volume of migrating bird populations through the Whitefish Peninsula Migration Corridor.

Being the northeastern tip of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Whitefish Point is a phenomenal concentration spot for migrating raptors, waterbirds, and song birds. the surrounding land and water features create a natural corridor, funneling thousands of birds directly to the Point each spring and fall as they travel thorough the Great Lakes region. This makes for spectacular bird-watching and provides tremendous opportunities to study and monitor bird populations. (quoted from:) Whitefish Point Observatory Website
