Description

World Migratory Bird Day celebrates birds around the world and reminds us that since they call many locations and countries home, nations must work together to protect migratory birds.

This year's theme is "Dim the Lights for Birds at Night." Most birds migrate at night to avoid predators. Artificial lights can attract or disorient migratory birds, throwing them off course or making them more vulnerable to predation. Consider turning lights off at night or investing in covers that direct light downward away from the sky.

Of the featured migratory bird species, we have several at the Botanic Garden: black-crowned night heron, Wilson's warbler, red-winged blackbird, western tanager and more. 

At this event you can also learn about native gardening to attract birds from Albuquerque Master Gardeners, Native Plant Society of New Mexico and Albuquerque Bonsai Club.
