Mackinaw Raptor Fest

April 3 - April 5


Mackinaw City, Michigan, located at the junction of two peninsulas and two Great Lakes, creates a unique confluence of migrating birds every spring and fall. Come see and learn about hawks and owls. This Fest is run by Mackinac Straits Raptor Watch, which hires biologists for its research. Along with outdoor hawk watching and field trips, it features a Friday Meet and Greet gathering. Saturday’s Keynote speaker David Cuthrell, Michigan Natural Features Inventory Program, will present Red-shouldered Hawk Research in Michigan. Plenary Presenter Josh Haas will give “Adaptations for Raptor Flight.” Registrants also will enjoy choices of concurrent indoor programs. A live raptor show by Wings of Wonder will precede the evening dinner. Registration opens early February 2020.
