Fall bird migration fills the skies at your Metroparks

At the Huron-Clinton Metroparks, September is known as Bird Migration Month and at Lake Erie Metropark it is known as Raptor Month. As the summer winds down and fall takes over animals start preparing for the winter and birds start their migration.

Less than half the bird species in the United States are year-round residents of their home range. For animals to survive the winter migration is key. It is a common assumption that migration is solely due to the weather, but there are several factors that determine migration. Some animals migrate to breed, some to find more favorable living conditions, but most migrate to find food.

Some species are migrating short distances, from county to county or from higher elevation to lower elevation, such as the Red-winged Blackbird. Some species migrate moderate distances, from state to state, such as the Eastern Bluebird. But the truly impressive species are those migrating great distances from country to country, such as the Ruby-throated Hummingbird and our raptors, like hawks, eagles, osprey and turkey vultures.

At Lake Erie Metropark, you can view the great migration, as a designated watch site for raptor migration. Influenced by geography, weather, and other factors the numbers of raptors streaming over the watch site have ranged from as low as 30,000 birds for the three-month season, to over 600,000 birds. Although Broad-winged Hawks and Turkey Vultures often make-up the largest percentage of these numbers, there are a total of 16 different species that can be seen with some consistency. These include such birds as Bald Eagles, Osprey, Sharp-shinned Hawks, Peregrine Falcons, Golden Eagles and others.

For over 35 years, the Detroit Hawk Watch has been conducted in one form or another at Lake Erie Metropark; and the boat launch in the park has been the primary site for over 20 of those years. A paid counter, sponsored by the International Wildlife Refuge Alliance, Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge, and the Hawk Migration Association of North America, along with numerous volunteers can be found at the watch site seven days a week from September 1st through the end of November. The site is opened to everyone, and information is provided by the volunteers; as well as an interpretive kiosk provided through donations from Hawk Watch volunteers.

Huron-Clinton Metroparks Interpreter, Paul Cypher said, “The fall signifies a special time at Lake Erie Metropark, we gear up for our Raptor programs, where we can share the beauty, strength and pure awesomeness of raptors. This year, we were able to restart outdoor programming so we can get out there and enjoy the season’s migration.”

Be sure to add your Metroparks to your fall bucket list and experience the wonder of the fall bird migration! Explore raptor and programs at https://www.metroparks.com/events/list/?tribe-bar-search=raptor.


 

Local fundraiser supports American Cancer Society’s fourth annual ‘Real Men Wear Pink’ campaign


Posted by The Huron Hub
Sept. 23, 2020

In the fifth year in Detroit, over 50 men will unite to fight breast cancer with
the American Cancer Society through participation in the Real Men Wear Pink campaign.
Throughout October, Real Men Wear Pink participants will encourage community members to
take action in the fight against breast cancer.

“In addition to wearing pink and raising awareness about breast cancer, these men will be
raising funds to help the American Cancer Society attack cancer from every angle and save
more lives from breast cancer,” said Amy Howard, Senior Community Development
Manager for the American Cancer Society. “Funds raised help us save lives from breast cancer
through early detection and prevention, innovative breast cancer research, and patient
support.”

Each Real Men Wear Pink participant accepts a fundraising challenge and will compete to be
the top fundraiser among his peers by the end of the campaign.

“No one should have to face a breast cancer diagnosis alone,” said Brendan Russow, VP of
Chapp Oil, New Boston, MI . “That’s why I joined the American Cancer Society in support of
their lifesaving work by participating in the Real Men Wear Pink campaign for my third year. This is a cause I personally believe in as my mother, Justine, is breast cancer survivor, and I’m
committed to raising awareness and funds for the American Cancer Society’s efforts.” We are in
our third year, so we know how to do it! We make it fun and get the community involved. We
start early by selling pink ribbons in our gas station in New Boston, but this year we have a way
for t-shirts to be ordered through http://letloverule.com/chappoilevents/shop/home (part of
the proceeds go to ACS). This year’s tagline for us is “Hauling Gas and Kicking Ass!” That’s what
we do best! We serve the community and we are making a difference with every dollar raised.
We are also hosting our 3rd annual breast cancer fundraiser at Iron Mikes Tavern (22900 Waltz
Rd, New Boston) on September 26 from 1-6pm. We are doing this in a covid-friendly
environment but also keeping it fun, thanks to my campaign manager Rebecca Chapp,”
(cousin-n-law to Brendan).

According to the American Cancer Society Cancer Facts & Figures 2020, an estimated 276,480
women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and an estimated 42,170 will
die from the disease this year. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in
women, and it is the most common cancer diagnosed in women other than skin cancer.

“Our community can make a huge impact in the breast cancer cause,” said Amy Howard,
Senior Community Development Manager for the American Cancer Society. “We are grateful
to our Real Men Wear Pink participants for lending their voices to this cause and fighting for
everyone affected by breast cancer, especially during this time with Covid-19. ACS is projecting
a 50% decline in funding for cancer research so getting men involved will help us streamline
funds and make an impact now more than ever.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and at the recommendation of the Pumpkin Festival Planning Committee and the Romulus Rotary Club, the City has decided to cancel this year’s Pumpkin Festival and Parade of Lights. The decision was made after careful consideration of all options.

Virtual fall events are still in the planning process and include a sunflower growing contest, pumpkin growing contest, fall harvest porch decorating contest, fall-themed cutest pet and cutest baby contests and Romulus Arts Council fall art contest.

“Our goal is to be creative and organize events for the community throughout the fall season while continuing to protect our residents by following Governor Whitmer’s guidelines and CDC recommendations,” said Romulus Mayor LeRoy Burcroff. “While we are saddened to cancel our favorite in-person fall event, we look forward to debuting alternative virtual events for our residents.”

For more information about the upcoming virtual contests and events, call the Community Development Office at (734) 942-7545 or follow the City of Romulus or Downtown Romulus, Michigan Facebook pages.
