Event description
Join us for the longest running annual spring bird count in Northern Virginia!

About this Event

Held at the height of spring migration, these counts can average over 100 species for the count circle. Teams of volunteers conduct an area search, counting species and individuals. Data is submitted for inclusion in a hemispheric database used by Partners in Flight to chart the status and population trends of resident and neotropical migratory species.

The 2020 World Migratory Bird Day conservation theme is Birds Connect Our World. It focuses on the tracking technologies used to explore the routes of migratory birds across the globe, and how this knowledge is used to inform conservation.

Since 1993, the focus of WMBD has been on the flyways in the Americas to highlight the need to conserve migratory birds and protect their habitats. Events, programs, and activities are coordinated in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean at protected areas, refuges, parks, museums, schools, zoos, and more. As many as 700 events and programs are hosted annually to introduce the public to migratory birds and ways to conserve them. To learn more about the history of the celebration click here.
