World Migratory Bird Day - May 9th


For over 25 years World Migratory Bird Day has been celebrated around, well, the world.

This global campaign brings awareness to migratory bird conservation, organized around the planet’s migratory bird corridors.  Here in Texas, we see birds migrating along the Americas corridor through the Central and Mississippi flyovers.

For some species, Texas is a temporary home for breeding, while others are just stopping along their route. However long they stay, their beauty, grace and birdsong are something we can all enjoy.
