Wild Bird and Biggby
More Marketplace Changes
There are more than sixty million birders in the United States--but Lisa Haanpaa, the new owner of Ann Arbor's Wild Bird Center, doesn't consider herself one of them. "I'm not technically a birder; I'm a backyard birder," she insists. While serious bird-watchers track migration patterns and travel the country adding to their life lists, she just likes to put out birdseed and watch the birds feed. For a backyard birder, though, she's pretty serious: she has six feeders to accommodate different species, diets, and feeding habits.
