Bird Checklist
for Pte. Mouillee State Game Area

Monroe County, Michigan

295 species

Last updated - April 9, 2011

Pointe Mouillee State Game Area is one of best birding sites in Michigan.  It consists of approximately 3,000 acres of marsh, mud flats, and open water.  Depending on season you will look here for marsh birds, shorebirds, waterfowl, and migrant passerines.  Pointe Mouillee's thirteen units and cells are separated by dike roads. Additionally, there are north and south causeways that separate the area from Lake Erie.  Pointe Mouillee is located (mostly) in Monroe County in southeast Michigan less than 30 miles south of Detroit at the northwest corner of Lake Erie.  Pointe Mouillee, pronounced "moo-ee-yay" or "moo-yay," is French for "wet point."  This birding site and its location are described at the bottom of this document.

Checklist of the Birds of Pte. Mouillee SGA

The checklist below has been constructed with input from experienced Michigan birders who are among the most frequent and regular visitors to Pte. Mouillee. The Michigan Bird Records Committee (MBRC) has reviewed and approved this checklist and has contributed a number of species to the list. Despite MBRC involvement this is not what could be called an official checklist. A small number of species for which clarification is needed are superscripted and explained in footnotes. This can be for a species for which the MBRC does not have documented/accepted records for Pte. Mouillee although a report deemed reliable exists. Other footnoted entries can be for species that were split after the last known record for Pte. Mouillee.

The checklist includes birds found in all of Pte. Mouillee State Game Area, including the relatively small area in Wayne County at the Headquarters.

The above species count is for all birds in the list, including the species listed below.

1White-winged Dove - Alan Ryff; August 13, 2007.

2Barn Owl - extirpated in the area; last reported by Jim Fowler, Tex Wells, Al Maley, Alan Ryff, and others in 1979

3"sharp-tailed" sparrow species - Joe Kleiman; December 27, 1975 // This sighting was documented and the record was accepted by the MBRC as Sharp-tailed Sparrow. This was before the splitting of Sharp-tailed Sparrow into two species, Nelson's and Saltmarsh--Ammodramus nelsoni and Ammodramus caudacutus. As there are presently no accepted records of A. caudacutus for Michigan, this bird was almost certainly what is now called Nelson's Sparrow.

The above list is not an official checklist, but it can be considered a reliable guide to the birds that may be found at Pte. Mouillee State Game Area.

List Contributors

This list has been constructed with input from several birders who are among the most frequent and regular visitors to Pte. Mouillee, together with the Michigan Bird Records Committee. If you have a species in your Pte. Mouillee list that is not in the above checklist, you are invited to submit it for inclusion.


The Pte. Mouillee State Game Area is near the town of Rockwood, Michigan, south of Detroit at the northwest corner of Lake Erie. It is approximately equidistant from Southfield, Ann Arbor, and Toledo--35 to 40 miles driving distance. Pte. Mouillee is just a few miles south of Grosse Ile along (and east of) a road known and marked as both W. Jefferson Ave. and U.S. Turnpike. It is about a mile south of Lake Erie Metropark.

See location maps.


I-75 South (from the Detroit area)

Take I-75 south to the South Huron River Drive exit (Exit 26). At the top of the exit ramp, turn right (east) and follow South Huron River Drive for 2.9 miles to its end at a T- intersection with U.S. Turnpike (labeled W. Jefferson Avenue on some maps). Turn right onto U.S. Turnpike and go 0.2 miles to Sigler Road. [From A Birder's Guide to Michigan (2004). See reference below.]

The Sigler Road parking lot is 0.3 miles to the left (east) on Sigler Road. The Mouillee Creek entrance is 1.0 miles past Sigler Road. Roberts Road is another 0.2 miles. (There is a small cement block building at Roberts Road.) Turn left and follow Roberts Road two miles to its end, where you will find a parking lot and the third entrance to Pte. Mouillee SGA.

If you wish to go to Pte. Mouillee Headquarters, turn left at the South Huron River Drive "T" with U.S. Turnpike and go 0.9 miles to Campau Road. It will be on your right. Follow Campau Road 1.2 miles to its end.

I-275 South (from western suburbs)

Take I-275 south to the Will Carleton Road exit (Exit 8). At the top of the exit ramp, turn left (east) and follow Will Carleton for 4.4 miles to a T-intersection at Telegraph Road (U.S. 24) in the town of Flat Rock. Turn left (north) and go just 0.2 miles before turning east again (your first right). Continue east for 2.8 miles to I-75 (you will be on Huron River Drive, not the South Huron River Drive referenced above in the I-75 directions). Pass under I-75 and continue for another 2.2 miles to a T-intersection at W. Jefferson Avenue (U.S. Turnpike). You will pass through the town of Rockwood. The entrance to Lake Erie Metropark is 0.15 miles left on W. Jefferson. Turn right (south) to go to Pte. Mouillee. It is 1.1 miles to Campau Road and 2.0 miles to the South Huron River Drive T-intersection with W. Jefferson/U.S. Turnpike referenced in the I-75 directions above. From South Huron River Drive go another 0.2 miles to Sigler Road or continue past to either of the other entrances to Pte. Mouillee SGA--1.0 miles to the Mouillee Creek entrance or 1.2 miles to Roberts Road (and then left and another two miles). If you wish to go to the Pte. Mouillee Headquarters, turn left on Campau Road and follow it 1.2 miles to its end.

(Note: If you jog right at Telegraph Road and continue through, you will be on South Huron River Drive. This route will also take you to U.S. Turnpike/W. Jefferson Ave., where you will be half a mile to the south of Campau Road, for Pte. Mouillee SGA HQ, instead of north.)

The following short description was excerpted, with permission, from the seven pages on Pointe Mouillee State Game Area in A Birder's Guide to Michigan (2004), by Allen T. Chartier and Jerry Ziarno.

Pointe Mouillee, one of the top birding sites in Michigan, should be on any birder's "must see" list.

In 1945, the State of Michigan acquired 2,604 acres of marsh for Pointe Mouillee SGA from the Pointe Mouillee Shooting Club. Over the years, an offshore barrier island, which protected the marsh, eroded and eventually disappeared, leading to the destruction of the marsh by the rising waters of Lake Erie. Restoration of the marsh was made possible when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers needed a disposal site for contaminated dredge material. This 700-acre facility was built offshore roughly in the shape of the barrier island that formerly protected the Pointe Mouillee Marsh. This man-made island--3.5 miles long and 1,400 feet wide at its widest--was immediately dubbed "The Banana". The Banana is comprised of five cells, numbered from south to north, that are being filled with dredge material.

There are some logistical considerations you need to make before setting out to bird Pointe Mouillee. The road system of the dikes is closed to private vehicles. This leaves two options: walking or biking. The latter is the most popular choice among local birders. Given the scale of the place, a scope is required. In the summer be prepared for long spells in the sun, as there is no shade on the dikes. Keep an eye out for lightning, as you are likely to be the tallest object around. Fortunately, despite the marsh setting, biting insects are rarely a problem.

There are three access points: the Sigler Road entrance, the Mouillee Creek entrance, and the Roberts Road entrance. [See Pte. Mouillee maps and the map in A Birder's Guide to Michigan.] ... Where you chose to enter depends on where the best birding is; check local rare bird alerts. [See Michigan birding listserver lists and RBAs.]

When parking at any of [the] parking areas, be security-conscious. The shattered safety glass in the parking lots bears witness to the fact that these places are sometimes favored by thieves, so unless you are a strong proponent of redistributive justice, do not leave any valuables in plain sight. The Mouillee Creek entrance, being on a main road, is perhaps less prone to this problem than the other entrances.

A Birder's Guide to Michigan describes Pte. Mouillee's units and cells in detail with information about what birds to look for, and where, in spring, summer, fall, and winter.


Pte. Mouillee SGA is open to non-hunters year round except during open seasons for snipe, rails, ducks, mergansers, coots, and moorhens. This period in 2007, for example, was September 15 through December 2 plus January 5 and 6, 2008. The dates vary a little bit each year, but the "no birders allowed" period is always September 15 through approximately the end of November plus the first weekend in January. Pte. Mouillee is not closed to non-hunters during early, regular, or late Canada Goose season except as those seasons overlap with the aforementioned seasons. The rest of the time the area is open to non-hunters and hunters (during legal hunting seasons). The last legal day for small game hunting is March 31. After that date you should not see many people out wearing blaze orange and carrying guns. For more information see the Michigan Waterfowl Hunting Guide at,1607,7-153-10363_10859---,00.html.

There has been an early goose season at Pte. Mouillee, September 1 through the 15th, every year since 1987. The hunting pressure usually dies off after the first couple of days, and most goose hunters are done goose hunting by 9:30-10:00am. Bird watchers and hikers are still allowed anywhere in the area until September 15.

Motor vehicles are not allowed on the dike roads. You must park in one of three parking lots provided and walk (or bike) in past the locked yellow gates. The shortest birding walk you will ever take here is about two miles and the longest probably about 10 miles. There is no protection from the sun out on the dike roads, so for shorebirding in August it is a good idea to wear a hat and sunscreen and to carry drinking water.

Many birders get around Pte. Mouillee by bicycle. Mountain bikes, or other wide-tired bikes, are required because of the rocky, uneven, and sometimes rutted dike roads.
