World Migratory Bird Day at The Cradle of Forestry in America

April and May are bursting with sound and color at Cradle of Forestry in America as many neotropical migrant birds fly to the North Carolina mountains amongst their breeding territories in the northern United States and Canada. The heavily forested mountains provide a key resting and feeding refuge for these migrants.  It is possible to see as many as 25 species of wood warblers on a single day during the peak of spring migration with species such as hooded warblers, worm-eating warblers, black-and-white warblers, northern parulas, many blue-headed vireos and on occasion, one may spot rare sightings such as the bright blackburnian warbler or scarlet tanager.  Guests at The Cradle of Forestry on World Migratory Bird Day will learn binocular and birding basics, several songs and calls, and visual bird identification along the way as every species encountered will be recorded and submitted into eBird, an online database.
