Follow the journeys of three plucky adventurers as they make their spring migrations north.
Follow Willy the Wilson’s warbler, Gracie the American white pelican and Moonbird the red knot on their spring journeys from their wintering grounds to destinations north. Our three plucky adventurers will be "tweeting" via Twitter on the wonders and tribulations they encounter on their annual migrations through North America, each traveling different flyways – Pacific, Mississippi and Atlantic. Follow the hashtag #FlyWithUs for their latest updates.
From Central America to the Boreal Forest, our travelers will pass through innovative conservation projects, protected natural areas – maybe even your own backyard – and possibly encounter dire threats to their wellbeing. It’s all in the life of a migratory bird in their quest to rest, feed and ultimately to nest, mate and rear their young.
