World Migratory Bird Day Festival

Each spring, birds begin their journey north. Wood ducks, osprey, bluebirds, tanagers and more fly thousands of miles each year – some passing through Minnesota, and some staying here to nest for the summer. Birders of all skills will find activities and hikes to enjoy for the day. Watch as a bird bander places small bands on the legs of songbirds, meet raptors up close, take a hike with a naturalist to find spring migrants in the woods and fields, and create some bird-themed artwork. Binoculars will be available to use for the day. Presentations on birding topics and booths featuring organizations involved in bird conservation will be there for learning opportunities. Come celebrate our feathered friends!
