Leaf and Feather Farm Tour

Tuesday, October 03, 2023 5:00 PM | Steve Jerant (Administrator)

The Jackson Audubon Club travelled down south to Hillsdale County this morning to visit Leaf and Feather Farm.   Owners Sydney and John gave us a tour of their property. They shared their vision of a nature-centric B&B out in the country.

John & Sydney (Steve Jerant)

We started the walk with a flyover of a Great Blue Heron.  The property has some old woods, drains, and views to wetland and fields. 

The trees and underbrush were nice with oaks, hickories, black cherry, spicebush, and muscle wood.

The birding was good. Highlights included Red-headed Woodpecker, Red-shouldered Hawk, and a few warblers.

We’re looking forward to more visits in different seasons and watch the realization of Sydney & John’s dream.

Our trip eBird list contains the species observed.
