International Migratory Bird Day

Saturday is international migratory bird day. Festivals and events will be held across North America that focus on birds. Here in Ohio, the most famous event occurs on the Lake Erie Coast near Oak Harbor Ohio at Magee Marsh state wildlife area and Ottawa National Wildlife refuge. I just did a google search for "international migratory bird day Ohio" and found several more events across the state, all scheduled for May 12. The Magee Marsh event corresponds with the peak of bird migration, and this area serves as a bird magnet. Birds stop and rest in wooded areas near the Lake before crossing over to Canada. From what I'm told, colorful birds are just about everywhere. I'm not sure if Megan and I will make it this year, but if you are interested in birds, don't miss this day on Ohio's coast.
