During May, songbirds migrating from South America pass through our area on their way to breeding grounds in the forests of Canada. These tiny travelers use forest preserves as stopover spots to rest and refuel. Join us to learn the secrets of these birds’ extraordinary journeys during guided hikes, family activities and presentations.

Schedule of events

World Migratory Bird Day Event

Our chapter will be celebrating our second annual World Migratory Bird Day on this day with the global theme “Dim the Lights for Birds at Night” to focus on the impacts of light pollution on migratory birds.
The University of Illinois Extension and the Freeport Public Library will also be part of this event! We will also have bird treats from The Cookie Jar bakery!

Migratory Bird Day at the Great Bend Brit Spaugh Zoo

From 1:30-2:30 p.m., visitors can take a tour of the zoo's veterinary clinic and learn about the work done to rehabilitate birds of prey.

Many of the raptors, or birds of prey, that the zoo takes in are migratory birds and are only passing through, Zoo Curator Ashley Burdick notes. The zoo attempts to rehabilitate injured raptors in hopes that they can then be released into the wild. Those who can't sometimes take up permanent residence at the zoo.

Sunday afternoon, visitors can meet one of the zoo's very own migratory birds, a Mississippi kite named Penelope.
