World Migratory Bird Day

Learn about the World Migratory Bird Day

World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) is an international education program that highlights and celebrates the migration of nearly 350 species of migratory birds between nesting habitats in North America and non-breeding grounds in Latin America, Mexico, and the Caribbean. 

World Migratory Bird Day is officially celebrated on the second Saturday of May in Canada and the US. Due to COVID-19, the City of Annapolis will celebrate WMBD at a later date. Meanwhile, get out and try to identify one of the over 300 bird species that migrate through the Annapolis area from late April through May. Please check back later for updates on WMBD in Annapolis.
