With over 3,000 miles of freshwater coastline, Michigan boasts an impressive 129 lighthouses and 450 species of birds--nearly half the recorded species in the entire United States. The same lights that keep sailors safe have long been natural waystations for our avian friends, weary from long flights, to land for a quick rest and refueling. More than 100 close-up photos invite visitors to find and identify the colorful birds at 20 iconic lighthouses known to be birding hotspots. This handily organized guide also provides location coordinates and a brief history of each beacon, making it a valuable resource for birdwatchers and lighthouse lovers alike.
