Pine Tree Acres Landfill
This recommendation comes from Russ Emmons, who was kind enough to send along descriptions of several county locations.
The infamous Pine Tree Acres landfill on 29 Mile Rd. just east of Gratiot (Lenox Twp.) usually has dozens or hundreds of Gulls, plus Vultures and Hawks around. There are marshy wetlands adjoining the landfill where Canada Geese, Mallards nest plus spring and fall other varieties of species are present. No admittance here but the landfill can seen along 29 Mile. Nearby on Frost Rd. at I-94 south of 27 Mile is another gravel pit that is now abandoned and a privately owned lake. No admittance allowed but the whole lake can be seen from Frost Rd. Spring and fall offers views of many duck, geese, grebe and gull species!
