World Migratory Bird Day Spring Bird Count with Bighorn Audubon Society

Each year Bighorn Audubon Society participates in the World Migratory Bird Day Spring Bird Count, created in 1993 at the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center and the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. The count is similar to Audubon’s Christmas Bird Count but is conducted on one day each year:  the second Saturday in May in the U.S. and Canada, and in October in Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean.

Birding by Ear Brunch at Miles Wildlife Sanctuary

In celebration of World Migratory Bird Day join naturalist Zach Adams for a relaxed and fun morning of brunch and birding by ear at Miles Wildlife Sanctuary. We will be enjoying coffee, tea, juice, pancakes as well as the wonderful bird songs of spring! The second week of May should be close to the peak of migration, and so the woods should be alive with warbler song! This program is usually a big hit, so we will be capping attendance at 20 people!
