Canadians of all ages Celebrate Migratory Birds

On May 12th, folks from all over Canada gathered at their local nature clubs to celebrate World Migratory Bird Day. This day of celebration included events (such as bird watches, bird banding, and bird demonstrations) for keen birders and enthusiasts, as well as activities for children interested in learning about their winged friends on their migratory journey back home to Canada. With numerous events occurring in every Canadian province, World Migratory Bird Day celebrations were met with great success! Many events were happy to promote their festivities.

Here are a few pictures that we gathered from just a few of these World Migratory Bird Day events happening all across Canada.
