The Joy of Birds

Above us, around us, and throughout the Northern Hemisphere, billions of birds are migrating. It’s a phenomenon that goes largely unnoticed to the average person, but to the bird enthusiast, it’s a season of wonder and excitement. Migration doesn’t always look like a river of birds soaring hundreds of feet high. More often, that epic journey of migration looks like the sudden appearance of the year’s first Western Tanager, newly arrived from Nicaragua, or a Cedar Waxwing, fresh off the wind from Columbia. The first sighting of those birds in our yards and parks signals to us that a vast natural wonder is passing through. Now that we are all staying  inside to protect each other, more people are taking notice of birds. In these uncertain times we turn to birds for a sense of peace and for a renewed connection with nature. With more people discovering the joy of birds right outside their windows, we Auduboners are reminded why we do the hard work of conservation. We protect birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow, and this is why.
