This weekend is a celebration of migratory birds! World migratory bird day is all about raising awareness about migratory birds, and conserving migratory birds and their habitats.
World migratory bird day is UN supported and happens on the 2nd weekend in May each year, though it seems to have snuck up on me this year.
The 2015 theme is bird safe energy. Find out more on the World migratory bird day website.
How are you celebrating? People all over the world will be attending festivals, events, and bird watching.
You could check out the migration of the BTO’s cuckoos! They have tracking devices on several cuckoos in order to find out where they go and why we are loosing cuckoos. See the tracking info here.
Get involved on twitter with the hashtag #MigratoryBirdDay @WMBD
I have been watching the birds in my garden, while cleaning windows. The starlings were nosily battling over food, and the sparrows were sitting by one of the nest boxes calling.
