World Migratory Bird Day LIVE

Welcome to World Migratory Bird Day coverage!

About The Festival
Youth, Families, and Schools

In 2021, we offer a special day for youth of all ages and their schools. Activities, presentations, and the chance to stump the bird experts are just a few of the opportunities.

Culture and Art

Song and art are a feature this year. We will lift our voices, both from the birds and people across the Western Hemisphere, in celebration of migration.

Workshops and Speakers

Join our speakers and mini-workshops to explore how birds sing, fly, and soar. We will also share simple ways to begin birdwatching and to help protect birds as they travel.

Stump the Experts

Do you have a question for the experts? Send in your short video with your question, and we'll bring on an expert to answer it!

World Migratory Bird Day 2021 invites you to Sing, Fly, Soar – Like a Bird! This year we celebrate the freedom of birds, the beauty of their songs, and the spectacular phenomenon of their migrations. Through our virtual programming and education materials, you can reach your community and engage them in learning about birds and their conservation. We’ll take you to sites where they stop to rest and refuel and to the places where they breed. Join us!

October 1 - October 30 2021
The Program

All times are in Eastern Time

Dirigido a educadores con el objetivo de proveerles la información y herramientas básicas para unirse a este programa educativo realizando actividades para divulgar los mensajes de conservación de las aves y sus hábitats.

Learn about Optics for the Tropics, a program that gets binoculars into the hands of educators and researchers. In 2020, we distributed over 60 pairs across Latin America and the Caribbean. A few of these groups will join us to share the importance of having binoculars. We'll also thank sponsor Joni Ellis, the founder of Optics for the Tropics.

Presenter: Ministerio del Ambiente de Colombia

La red de Jóvenes de Ambiente es una iniciativa del Ministerio del Medio Ambiente de Colombia, que tiene como propósito buscar que los jóvenes se empoderen del territorio, realicen propuestas y proyectos en beneficio del ambiente. Conoce a los futuros lideres de las Aves con edades comprendidas entre 14 años a los 26 años. Este es un espacio para que escuchemos que tienen que decir los jóvenes para un futuro sustentable.

Presenter: Panama Bird Festival

The Panama Bird Festival will Sing, Fly, and Soar this weekend! Can't travel? This is almost like being there. Join us to see some of the activities as migratory birds head to their wintering sites.

Un conversatorio virtual con el niño fundador de Guardianes de la Vida, Francisco Vera, Embajador Ad Honorem-ambiental de la Unión Europea, junto a sus pares niños invitados de Panamá. Enfoque del conversatorio entre los niños: la protección del medio ambiente, acciones para contrarrestar el cambio climático, conservación de hábitats, cero basura, cuidados de fuentes hídricas; para proteger a las aves migratorias y proveer de ambientes sanos para colmar sus necesidades cuando aterrizan a descansar, dormir y alimentarse para seguir su vuelo.

Presenter: Siruki

Por medio de la actividad se buscará conocer los Zopilotes que tienen poblaciones migratorias y son limpiadores de los ecosistemas.
 Conocer un poco de la especie Cathartes aura a través de un cuento de títeres guiñol.
 Diseñar un zopilote de papel estilo pop up.

Come test your knowledge and join us for Bird Quizzes!
Do you think you are a bird expert? Or are you just into beating out the competition. Either way we are sure you will get to learn something you didn't know!

Come join us to learn all about the Turkey Vulture Cathartes aura. Nature's Educators will teach us about this bird and help us better understand them as a species. What we can do to help conserve them.

Presenters: Nature Educators

Presenter: Laura McDuffie

Lesser Yellowlegs are in trouble, their populations have declined by 65% over the last 50 years. Laura’s work is helping to identity environmental and human threats to this elegant migratory shorebird. By tracking birds with GPS tags, she followed hundreds of individual birds on their amazing migratory journeys.
