International Migratory Bird Day: Annual Early Morning Bird Walk & Breakfast. Saturday, May 13, 2017. 6:30am – 9:00am at Audubon Greenwich

The Audubon Greenwich annual Bird Walk and Breakfast celebrates International Migratory Bird Day, a worldwide celebration of the return of thousands of migrating birds from their wintering grounds to their breeding grounds and the special habitats that they stop at along the way.

Join Audubon Greenwich to celebrate the incredible journeys of neotropical migrant birds. Stick around after the bird walk for food and conversation with your fellow bird lovers.

International Migratory Bird Day is the annual recognition of the importance of ‘stopover sites.’

When birds migrate between nesting and wintering sites, they don’t just stop anywhere; they rely on a handful of resource-rich and strategically located sites where they may double their body weight as they acquire the energy-rich fat stores needed to fly thousands of kilometers across continents and oceans. These places are known as stopover sites.

All ages welcome.

Walk is free. Breakfast is $10 per person.

RSVP to Eli at eschaffer@audubon.org or 203-930-1349.

The event starts with a free early morning bird walk at 6:30am at the Audubon Center, which will be led by senior naturalist Ted Gilman.

Following the walk, breakfast will be served in the Kimberlin Nature Center, costing $10 per person.
