It's finally here!
Ok, so we just found out this about this holiday this morning. But why not celebrate?
International Migratory Bird Day officially takes place on the second Saturday in May in the U.S. and Canada and in October in Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean.
Apparently each year, hundreds of thousands of people observe IMBD. They will gather in town squares, community centers, schools, parks, and refuges across the Western Hemisphere to learn more about wild birds, take action to conserve birds and their habitats, and simply have fun.
