Spring on the Wing

March 25, 2021 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Connecticut Warbler

Spring in Northern Minnesota is a long process with lots of fits and spurts, which can in turns drive us crazy, yet still fill us with wonder. It moves like a long parade, with seemingly utter chaos in the overall event yet still some order drives the whole process.

Spring migration of birds to summer breeding grounds is timed practically to the day annually for some species. How do they manage this, what signals do they use to know when it’s time to move? What route should they follow, who comes through when? Why would a bird want to bother leaving the warmth and seeming prosperity of the tropics to return to the north? How is spring migration different that fall migration? So many questions for how birds manage the changing of the seasons.

Join Margie via Zoom to explore this natural wonder, get an update on what’s already been happening in this year’s migration, and a forecast of what is yet to come.
