| With the arrival of autumn comes the cool, crisp air and the amazing spectacle of fall migration here in the Atlantic Flyway. As billions of raptors, shorebirds, and songbirds pass through, on their path from breeding to wintering grounds, they rely on airspace and critical habitat on the ground to rest and refuel. Along their route, they often navigate a variety of obstacles, including glass, artificial light at night, and depleted food sources.|
Below, we highlight some ways Audubon and community members throughout the region are working together to monitor these migrating birds, understand more about the hazards they face, and implement activities on the ground, which can help give birds a better chance to complete their arduous journey.
Watch our Flying High: Look to the Skies migration video, and read on to learn more about these projects and how you can get involved. Stay tuned for more updates to come as we continue to move forward in shaping Audubon Mid-Atlantic.
Thank you for all you do for birds.
