Dolph Park, Ann Arbor’s Other Birding Hotspot

Join the inimitable Don Chalfant for a program on one of Ann Arbor’s best birding spots. A west side park with some of the same attributes as the University of Michigan Arboretum, but with the advantage that it can be birded in less than an hour, Dolph has lakes, rolling hills, a marsh, and varied tree and plant life, which draws a good variety of spring migrants. Don Chalfant has birded Dolph for many years, and found the first Washtenaw County record of the rare Kirtland’s Warbler there a few years ago. Don is a retired Ann Arbor Public Schools teacher who lives and birds in Ann Arbor, and annually migrates to his winter home in Florida.

WAS would like to invite you to join us on another international field trip next year; this time to the exotic location of Borneo! We will be traveling and birding for 10 days (July 21-31, 2018) with Rockjumper Tours. They are an amazing company and we look forward to seeing 225-250 species of birds, including most of the birds only found on this tropical island. Additionally, we plan to see a number of great mammals such as Proboscis Monkey, Orangutan, Elephant and many more. We will go out on night drives, bird by boat, explore the famous Gomontong Caves, bird along rainforest canopy walkways, etc… If you are interested in joining us or just simply asking questions or getting more information, please contact Bryn Martin. Bryn can send you a very detailed itinerary with pricing, as well as a checklist of birds we plan/hope to see. Spaces are limited and already starting to fill up. (There are currently 3 spots remaining.)
