Migration has started!!
Migration is a miracle. By land, air and water, millions of birds do it, in time with the seasons. Most of our birds, approximately 90%, do not spend the winter here.They migrate farther south, anywhere from the southern United States to the south tip of South America.
Oak Hammock Marsh is an important staging area for hundreds of thousands of ducks and geese and for many other species. It is a safe protected area for the birds to stop and eat, building up fat reserves before starting the next leg of their journey.
The Centre is celebrating fall migration with special dinners, a migration festival, nightly fly-ins, an early morning count, a concert and many other activities.
Join us this fall to see this miracle first hand!
