Superior World Migratory Bird Day Celebration

The City of Superior Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department is partnering with the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve and the Friends of the Lake Superior Reserve (FOLSR) to celebrate International Migratory Bird day. We invite the public to join us for a two part celebration on May 14, 2022. The day will kick off with a Bird Walk on Wisconsin Point from 7:30am – 9:30am and will be led by Jeff Davis, Duluth Audubon President and Pat Collins, Founding board member of the FOLSR group. The focus will be on sighting spring migrants in the varied habitat of Wisconsin Point.

The walk will be followed by an event at the Lake Superior Estuarium on Barker’s Island from 10am – 11am. There will be a video from Tom Prestby, Wisconsin Conservation Manager for Audubon Great Lakes talking about projects happening in the Lake Superior Reserve to improve the habitat for migratory birds in the Estuary. Following will be a series of fun and interesting bird-related videos. You are invited to join us for some light snacks and beverages as well. After the videos, there will be spotting scopes set up outside the Estuarium for viewing birds around Barkers Island.  A limited number of binoculars will also be available.  A volunteer will be available at each station to help identify birds, and answer your bird questions.

Those interested in joining the celebration can visit for more information and to register for the events.
