View a slideshow of some of these amazing birds you may spot on your bird walk.
Not only are birds beautiful to look at, but migratory birds are excellent gauges for our natural environment's overall health.
Like humans, birds depend on clean freshwater systems and healthy forests for survival, and The Nature Conservancy works collaboratively across international borders to protect these habitats — for nature and people.
How do birds change with the seasons, and how does this influence your identification of them?
Grab your binoculars and join fellow birders for great sights and sounds throughout the DC Metro area. Learn from our experienced trip leaders about the tremendous journeys these small birds have made and enjoy their beautiful colors and songs as they stop to “bulk up” for the rest of their trip. Beginners welcome!
