In searching for news about the birding world, as I often do, I came across this article that gives some information about how the Jackson Convention and Visitors Bureau is successfully bringing birders and birdwatchers to Jackson County, Michigan, where they spend their hard-earned dollars while watching birds.  And it’s no wonder, with the nicely put together birdwatching portion of the Jackson County Visitor’s Bureau website.

It is always great to see an understanding of and appreciation for the economic impact we birders can have on an area.  Go (to) Jackson County!
