When is World Migratory Bird Day?

World Migratory Bird Day is officially celebrated on the second Saturday in May (May 14th in 2022) as migratory birds journey to nesting sites and on the second Saturday in October (October 8th in 2022) as they return to wintering areas. Because birds do not all migrate at the same time and to provide the opportunity to observe birds on stopover sites as they journey, however, we encourage you to celebrate when the timing is best at your location. WMBD programs and events are hosted nearly every month of the year.

Every day is Bird Day! 

World Migratory Bird Day is Every day!
