The Rouge River Bird Observatory is in the field year round, whether it is bird banding, bird population monitoring, or regional biological inventories, we are documenting what we see and do.
Here’s where you’ll find a list of the latest bird sightings from the University of Michigan-Dearborn campus as well as around the entire city of Dearborn. Our bird checklist also covers all of Dearborn; for those of you who want all the details about Dearborn’s birds, find out what’s inside The Birds of Dearborn: An Annotated Checklist by RRBO’s Julie Craves.
We’ve also got a whole section on especially noteworthy birds, and one on Bird Stuff You Should Know which includes frequently asked questions about birds and bird conservation issues. Use the links on the right to find out more!
