Join the Little Traverse Conservancy and the Petoskey Regional Audubon Society (PRAS) on a birding field trip at the Charles A. Ransom Nature Preserve near Charlevoix. The preserve offers a delightful mixture of habitats, which allows it to support a wide diversity of bird species. Scarlet Tanagers and Indigo Buntings have been regular in the past. Great-crested Flycatcher nested at this location last summer. Rose-breasted grosbeak, various woodpeckers, various sparrows and even some warblers are all possibilities. Plan to spend approximately two hours hiking through meadow, woods, and forest edge trails. Darrell Lawson, current president of the PRAS, will lead the trip and help to both locate birds and explain their behavior. Please go online or call to register.
