Dear birders,

Please consider joining us at Weston Bend State Park for Wings Over Weston,
this Saturday, from 9AM to 3PM.  Weston Bend State Park is part of the
Iatan/Weston River Corridor IBA.  Weston Bend State Park contains 1,360
acres of bottomland forest - the largest surviving tract of bottomland
forest along the entire Missouri River.  It's no mystery why so many
warblers and neo-tropical migrants stop there during migration.  Today,
while doing some prep work for Wings Over Weston, we had 15 species of
songbirds in 10 minutes while standing in one spot!  The weather is going to
be beautiful - 60's and sunny!

 

If you have nieces, nephews, kids, or grandkids, consider bringing them to
this wonderful festival that opens up the world of birding to children.  We
teach them about birds, migration, and conservation of habitat through 25
interactive booths.  Or, come by yourself to bird.  Missouri River Bird
Observatory will be banding birds, Operation Wildlife will be showing
rescued and rehabilitated birds of prey, the bluegrass tornadoes will be
playing bluegrass, and Gary's on the Go and Tropical Sno will be serving
refreshments.

 

We can't wait to see you!
