Whitefish Point Bird Observatory, Paradise

Whitefish Point provides valuable, concentrated habitat for migrating birds in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The shape of the point intersects with Lake Superior to create a natural migration corridor, funneling thousand of birds to the Point. This unique location provides spectacular birding and invaluable opportunities for Michigan Audubon to conduct important research, education, and conservation programs.

Whitefish Point Bird Observatory (WPBO) was established in 1979 to document and study migratory bird populations and their habitats in the Great Lakes Region and is a program of Michigan Audubon, Michigan's oldest conservation organization.
