Many birds nest and breed in Pennsylvania, while others are year-round residents. Then there are those that rely on critical areas in the Commonwealth to rest and refuel along their migration. Two of our most iconic migrants are the Tundra Swan and Snow Goose. Every year, these showy birds arrive at the Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area by the thousands, stopping over on their way to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and linking Pennsylvania to one of the world’s greatest bird nurseries and one of America’s last truly unspoiled habitats.

Join us on Thursday, February 3rd from 6:30-8:00pm to learn more about this annual phenomenon that draws people from around the world to one of Audubon’s globally Important Bird Areas, and discover some of the history and habitat work that makes Middle Creek unique, and particularly attractive, to migrating waterfowl and avian diversity.

Then get to know more about birds commonly seen in our communities during the winter months and learn how your participation in the Great Backyard Bird Count, a community science program to collect and share bird sightings, can help identify population trends and inform management plans to protect birds and the places they need.

Presenters will be:

  • Brant Portner, Environmental Education Specialist, Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area, Pennsylvania Game Commission
  • Keith Russell, Program Manager for Urban Conservation, Audubon Mid-Atlantic
