Tawas Point Birding Portfolio

Kirtlands Warbler*
This page is a portfolio of all the birds I was able to photograph during the three days I spent at Michigan Audubon's Tawas Point Birding Festival.  Some are pretty poor quality, but the point was to document what I saw so I had some kind of record and to be able to share it with my fellow birders.  An asterisk denotes a first-time (or "life") bird for me.  There were a handful of common birds that I did not think to photograph, such as the Blue Jay and Chickadee.  In all I saw somewhere around 59 birds.  

Enjoy!
