World Migratory Bird Day for Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean

October 12

World Migratory Bird Day is an extension of Interntaional Migratory Bird Day, which focused on the Western Hemispere and started in 1993. Continuing the tradition with IMBD, WMBD celebrates and brings attention to one of the most important and spectacular events in the Americas – bird migration. It includes 700 events and programs dedicated to introducing the public to migratory birds and ways to conserve them.

Although Migratory Bird Day is officially celebrated on the Second Saturday in October for Mexico, Cenral and South America, and the Carribean, as migrating birds return to wintering sites, birds do not all migrate at the same time. To provide the opportunity to observe birds on stopover sites as they journey,  you are encouraged to celebrate when the timing is best at your location. WMBD programs and events are hosted nearly every month of the year.

Every day is Bird Day!
