The Beginning

International Migratory Bird Day started in 1993, and is celebrated annually on the second Saturday of May. It is a chance for conservationists, natural resource agencies, families and individuals to celebrate birds and bird migration.

Nebraska Bird Month 

Realizing that not all  organizations could host events on one specific Saturday, the
Nebraska organizers decided to create a month-long celebration of birds and bird watching throughout the month of May.

Why Celebrate Birds?

Birds provide ecosystem services such as insect and rodent control, seed dispersal and as prey for other animals. In the United States, there are over 10 million bird watchers which contribute nearly $20 billion to the economy.

I am hosting a bird event in May.
How do I get it on the website?

First, thanks! The goal of Bird Month is to have lots of groups host events all across the state. Together we can celebrate state-wide without taxing one group. If you have an event to add, please contact Paige Moss
