Celebrate International Migratory Bird Day with National Aviary Ornithologist, Bob Mulvihill. National Aviary Ornithologist, Bob Mulvihill, will lead this popular spring bus tour to one of the most important migration hotspots in the world! Countless migratory birds pause on the Presque Isle peninsula to rest and refuel before crossing over the Great Lakes to distant nesting grounds as far away as northern Canada and Alaska.  You will visit the Erie Bird Observatory’s spring bird-banding station for some close-up views of colorful migrant wood warblers of many kinds.

The tour departs from the National Aviary at 7:00 am and returns by 5:00 pm.
