The first couple weeks are usually dominated by Red-necked Grebe flights with a possibility of jaegers, Sabine's Gull, and 20+ shorebird species. Keep checking back to see how the season goes. And if you want near-daily updates, you can follow along on the Whitefish Point Bird Observatory Waterbird blog.
Here are a few of the early season birds:
|The typical view of Red-necked Grebes at Whitefish Point|
|Buff-breasted Sandpiper-definitely one of my favorite shorebird species|
|Sabine's Gull-hopefully at least a few of these will come by the point this fall|
