Migratory Bird Day To Be Marked In Yellowstone National Park With Birding Events

Migratory Bird Day will be marked this Saturday in Yellowstone National Park, where rangers will take you birding and staff from the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center will teach you about raptors seen in the park.

A ranger-led bird watching car caravan is set for Saturday morning from 8 a.m. to noon inside the park. Those interested in participating should meet at the Madison Junction picnic area. Caravan riders are reminded they will still need to pay the $25 park entrance fee.

Saturday afternoon between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m., the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone, Montana, will host a live raptor program and games and crafts. Children of all ages can play the migration game, "It's a Risky Journey," create bird masks and origami or participate in a variety of other programs and activities.
