Willows and Wings birding hike is May 19 at Willow Creek SRA

LINCOLN, Neb. – The public is invited to celebrate International Migratory Bird Month by participating in Willows and Wings on May 19 at Willow Creek State Recreation Area in Pierce County.

This event includes a bird identification hike and an introduction to eBird, an online citizen science tool for monitoring bird populations.

All ages and experience levels are welcome. No park entry permit is required as May 19 is Free Fishing and Park Entry Day in Nebraska. Flights of birders will leave the area’s northwest parking lot, off 547th Avenue, at 6 and 9 a.m.

This event is a partnership of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and the Northern Prairies Land Trust.
