Can children fly? At least, they can imagine and play at being birds on the wind in the active and educational migration game. Even if they don’t leave the ground, they can forage for bird bracelets and buttons, stickers and tattoos, coloring and quizzes. All ages are invited for guided nature walks, with spring warblers and swallows likely to perform for the guests.

Other acts booked for this event include songs by Black-headed Grosbeak, Cedar Waxwing, Common Yellowthroat, Warbling Vireo, Western Tanager and Western Wood-Peewee, all new arrivals from their winter nesting grounds.

Activities are free, organized by Eastside Audubon volunteers and the Eastside Park Rangers.

This event, with the theme “Restore Habitat, Restore Birds,” is one of 500 to be held in North America for the Twenty-Third International Migratory Bird Day. For background on the national celebrations, see www.birdday.org. To volunteer for the Juanita Bay Park event or for more information, call the Eastside Audubon office at (425) 576-8805.
