Migratory Bird Day Celebration

May 8 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join us for a Migratory Bird Day Celebration!

Have you ever wondered why do some birds migrate and others don’t? How do they complete their seasonal journeys and what dangers do they face?

Fontenelle Forest is participating in a citizen-science event in partnership with other state-wide organizations to help celebrate Nebraska’s Migratory Bird Month.

This event will include:

Guided Birding Hikes led by expert birders:
Bring your binoculars (or rent a pair at guest services) and your questions! Meet outside on Dennis Plaza during one of the hours listed below:

  • 11:00-12:00
  • 12:00-1:00
  • 1:00-2:00

In the Raptor Woodland Refuge: 
Join expert local birder Bob Wells in the refuge to learn more about the many migrating raptors that we have on display at the Raptor Woodland Refuge.

In the Nature Center: 

  • Meet some of our migrating educational raptors with their handlers up close inside the Nature Center.  Bring your camera!
  • Free migratory bird information from our friends at Nebraska Game & Parks while supplies last!

No registration necessary.

This program is free to members or with daily admission for non-members.


This event is part of the Nebraska May Birdblitz Collaboration.

Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever of Nebraska, Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, Fontenelle Forest, Audubon at Rowe, Audubon of Omaha, and Bird Conservancy of the Rockies join to educate and provide hands-on experiences in learning about and protecting our bird populations.
