Conservancy Day: Bird Migration – How it’s Done

  • Kromrey Middle School Room 510 7009 Donna Drive Middleton, WI 53562 (map)

Whether the American Robin is making its leisurely way from Illinois wintering grounds or a Bobolink is making its cross-hemispherical journey from Argentina to Wisconsin, both trips require a sense of direction. Orientation and navigation skills beyond those of Sacagawea, Merriwether Lewis, and William Clark are needed for these aerial treks.  Learn the many ways we think birds are able to complete the wonder of migration.
