This year is the centennial of the Migratory Bird Treaty signed on Aug. 16, 1916. International Migratory Bird Day (IMBD) is typically recognized on the second Saturday of May – tomorrow!
Through many events held throughout the Americas, IMBD celebrations will explore how birds have inspired some of the most significant environmental conservation actions. For generations, migratory birds have connected communities across continents, providing unique opportunities for international collaboration and inspiring people to improve conditions for birds, all wildlife, and for ourselves.
Head out tomorrow in your area to watch birds. Let us know in the comments section how many species you saw!
