The Secrets of Fall Migration presented by Bill Rapai

If you missed this informative presentation, you may view the recording here.
Bird migration is both mysterious and apparent.  Nobody knows why some birds fly thousands of miles from Central and South America to raise their young in North American woods every summer and then fly back for winter.  Bill Rapai will tell you how birds migrate, when to expect certain species, and offers factoids on many of the birds you will see.  Besides being the author of a book on the Kirtland’s Warbler, he is president of Grosse Pointe Audubon.
