Birds on Niagara will take place Feb. 16-19 along the Niagara River. There will be both indoor and outdoor events over the celebration. More information can be found on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/BirdsOnTheNiagara
This is North America’s only international bird festival promoting the intersections between birds, conservation and social justice.
The Niagara River links Lake Erie and Lake Ontario and it’s located at the center of the Niagara River Globally Significant Important Bird and Biodiversity Area, as well as the Niagara River Ramsar Wetlands of International Importance. Both of these conservation areas extend into Lakes Erie and Ontario.
Winter birds include birds migrating from the Arctic and the boreal forests of the Northwest and the Northeast. These include Snowy Owl, many species of waterfowl including ducks, swans, and geese, large populations of typical regional winter birds, and in some winters irruptive species from the north such as finches. This is a good opportunity to see these birds.
