International Migratory Bird Day 2004

April 1, 2004

Birds will again be studied—and celebrated—at the International Migratory Bird Day festival at the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday, May 8, in Alviso (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.). The free event will include naturalist-led bird walks, bird banding demonstrations, arts and crafts, and beginning bird-watching for children. An adults-only twilight bird walk and presentation on May 7 kick off the event. At the talk, biologist Gerry McChesney will explore the successful restoration of the common murre population at Devil’s Slide Rock that was extirpated by gill-net captures and poisoning from oil spills. For more information, call (408)262-5513. Festival sponsors include the Santa Clara Valley Urban Runoff Pollution Prevention Program, the San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory, and the City of San Jose.
