World Migratory Bird Day (Spring Migration)

Saturday, May 14, 2022

Happy World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD), a celebration of migratory birds and their spectacular journeys! WMBD is an international education event focused on the nearly 350 bird species that travel between their nesting habitats in North America and wintering grounds in Latin America and the Caribbean. In addition to our beloved cranes, nearly 20 million migratory birds pass through Crane Trust properties each year.

This year’s theme is “Dim the lights for birds at night.” For more information about WMBD, birds, and free downloadable materials please visit!
