Local Learning: Take Flight with the Wild Birds of Michigan and Emily Strelow

An intro to birding migration in Michigan. We will discuss the importance of field marks, bird sounds, flyways, weather, books and online media in the world of birding. Bring your questions and desire to learn birding basics. No experience necessary.

Emily Strelow has an MFA in Creative Writing from University of Washington in Seattle and an undergraduate degree in Environmental Science. Her first novel, The Wild Birds, was published March of 2018 with Rare Bird Books. She was born and raised in Oregon’s Willamette Valley but now lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan. For the last decade she combined teaching writing with doing seasonal avian field biology. While doing field jobs she camped and wrote in remote areas in the desert, mountains and by the ocean. She is a mother to two boys, a naturalist, and a writer.
