Birds not usually seen in Michigan show up here on occasion. But why? Learn about rare birds—sometimes called vagrant birds—and how migration affects rare sightings in a three-week, online course with the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary.

Out of Bounds Birds begins Tuesday, Jan. 25, and continues for the two following Tuesdays from 6 to 7:15 pm. Session topics are:

Tuesday, Jan. 25: Migration

Tuesday, Feb. 1: Avian vagrancy

Tuesday, Feb. 8: Rare birds of Michigan

The cost of the course is $35 for W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary members, or $45 for non-members. Participants can earn continuing education credits for the Master Gardener, Master Naturalist, and Conservation Stewards programs. Digital handouts and worksheets, selected identification keys and technical references will be provided. Register at bit.ly/kbs-rare-birds2022 through Sunday, Jan. 23.
