DETROIT (AP) - A driving tour of Detroit’s Belle Isle is part of an effort to assess the abundance of birds around North America.

Michigan Department of Natural Resources wildlife staff will participate in Saturday’s tour of the island park located in the Detroit River to count waterfowl and other birds on and around the island. Participants should meet at the Belle Isle Nature Zoo and will use their own vehicles.

DNR wildlife technician Holly Vaughn says in a statement that participants “should have plenty of birds to count” this time of year.

Participants are asked to bring binoculars and a spotting scope. The count is part of Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s annual Great Backyard Bird Count.
