Perfect for everyone from birding novices to aviary aficionados, check out our guide, sure to make your love of all things bird take flight.

Bird is the word this weekend. Twice a year, bird enthusiasts flock to area parks, overlooks and nature centers to celebrate the migratory birds that make their home in the Greater Milwaukee area like the sandhill cranes, robins and cardinals. It may be bye-bye birdie for now, but for now it’s the perfect time to spot your favorite winged creatures.

Taking place on the second Saturday of May as well as the second Saturday of October, World Migratory Bird Day celebrates these majestic animals as they make their annual pilgrimage across the country. In honor of this occasion, we’ve let the blog go to the birds, with everything you need to make WMBD a real hoot.
