The following message has just come across from Tom Funke, Michigan Audubon's Director of Conservation:
The Kirtland Warbler Management Group, comprised of various government agencies tasked to conserving the Kirtland Warbler, has asked Michigan Audubon for help.
We are seeking interested birders that would volunteer a day or two of their time to look for Kirtland Warblers in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
We are asking that you explore an area suspected of having Kirtland Warblers at least once during June 6 – 15th, 2009.
Skye Haas has graciously volunteered his time to coordinate volunteer birders in this endeavor. Kirtland’s are suspected throughout the UP, from the Baraga Plains all the way to Sault Ste. Marie. email@example.com
If you are interested in participating, please send Skye and myself an email indicating your interest. Skye will be attending a training to get the details then be in email contact with you.
Having seen KW in habitat is beneficial, but not necessary.
Yours in conservation,
Director of Conservation
Michigan Audubon Society
