Thousands of migratory birds have begun to flock to Ottawa County, and flocks of people are about to arrive as well. They will come for The Biggest Week in American Birding on May 3-12. The event is organized annually by Black Swamp Bird Observatory.

Each year, bird enthusiasts from around the world travel to Ottawa County during The Biggest Week to catch a glimpse of the thousands of birds who stop on the lake shore for respite during migration. Warblers are a particular favorite among birders, who fill life lists or snap photos, turning life on the wing into art.

Black Swamp Bird Observatory has planned a variety of educational and entertaining events for the week, from workshops and field trips to speaking events and evening socials. More information on The Biggest Week, including a full schedule of events, can be found at www.biggestweekinamericanbirding.com.
