Celebrating Migratory Birds

Klamath Bird Observatory will join the North Mountain Park Nature Center and the Rogue Valley Audubon Society at the Nature Center to celebrate International Migratory Bird Day. This free family event will run from 8:00am until noon on Saturday May 8th. Here you can enjoy bird friendly shade-grown coffee, go on a bird walk, learn from local biologists about the importance of bird banding or, partake in fun kids events such as the Bird Olympics. Many migrants such as the yellow-breasted chat and western kingbirds have arrived and are starting to breed throughout the area. You are now able to enjoy an up-close view of tree swallows building their nests by watching a live feed video recorded through the “spy-cam”.
