Fall Migration ..... Already!?!!?
The bird observatory staff have started the fall migration monitoring program.
Flocks of geese are already starting to move south and the songbirds that were breeding up in the boreal forest have began to make their journey to their wintering grounds.
We hope you are able to join us at the lab to see these wondering birds up close.
Phone 780-819-9927 to check with staff on their schedules. See you at the LAB!!
