While International Migratory Bird day is typically held on the second Saturday in May (May 12 in 2012), any day can be a day of celebration.  Celebrate  whenever migratory bird arrival happens in your own community or whenever you feel like celebrating birds!

IMBD is an invitation to celebrate and support migratory bird conservation!
