Thank you for visiting Copper Harbor Birding. Our organization was developed to promote bird watching, awareness and conservation in Copper Harbor and the Keweenaw. There is amazing bird life here, read about it and pass it on! A great spot for bird watching all year long and observing the spectacular spring migration!
Not only is the Keweenaw Peninsula along the Central Migration Flyway, but it offers a wide variety of bird habitats. Copper Harbor itself is a quiet place of refuge for many migrating species and even sea ducks. One can view numerous water birds on Lake Superior as well as Lake Fanny Hooe and Lake Manganese. Brockway Mountain is known as “Hawk Highway” because of the huge number of migrating raptors observed from it. 17 raptor species have been spotted from the mountain. There is old growth pine forest at the Estivant Pines Nature Sanctuary, home to many nesting warblers and other songbirds and several hiking trails which offer up excellent birding opportunities. Hunter’s Point is a jump off point for many songbirds flying over Lake Superior and a great place to find woodland birds.
