Zip Code: 48236

Event Description: Explore the Ford House grounds with passionate bird spotters!


Novice and experienced birdwatchers are invited to join Rosann Kovalcik, owner of Wild Birds Unlimited in Grosse Pointe Woods, on a guided walk through the Ford estate. After each walk, participants gather to tally the species of birds seen.

Space is limited. Tickets are $5 and must be purchased in advance at

During the Ford House bird walks, bird spotters frequently see dozens of species on these walks, and every walk is different. Many species of birds call the estate home, in addition to the others who pass by during migration, stopping to rest and refuel throughout the 86 acres of woods, gardens and lakefront property. Over the years doing walks here, over 190 species of birds have been found.

Recommended gear includes waterproof and comfortable walking shoes/boots, weather-appropriate clothing (layers!!), and binoculars (though we do provide loaner pairs to those without optics). Be prepared for 1-3 miles of walking at a casual pace, across various types of terrain (some unpaved and hilly areas included).

We look forward to birding with YOU!
