Try This! International Migratory Bird Day Celebration

Welcome back birds during the International Migratory Bird Day Celebration from 9 am – 11:30 am on Saturday, May 20, at LaBagh Woods. During the event, attendees can enjoy seeing a variety of birds migrating from Central America, South America and the Caribbean.

 

“The theme for this year’s International Migratory Bird Day Celebration is ‘Helping Birds Along the Way,’ and events will celebrate the importance of stopover sites, which are crucial refuges for migratory birds where they can rest and refuel before continuing their incredible journeys,” explains Katy Krigbaum of the Chicago Ornithological Society.
