Happy Bird Day featuring the Early Morning Bird Walk

Sat, 20 May, 2017 6:45 AM - 3:00 PM

Happy Bird Day!

In celebration of International Migratory Bird Day, we’re hosting a “Happy Bird Day” at Woodland Park Zoo. Join us for programs and activities throughout the day!

Early Morning Bird Walk

6:45 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.

In celebration of International Migratory Bird Day, take a guided tour on zoo grounds and learn firsthand about the wild birds that call Woodland Park Zoo home; and those that make it a temporary home during their annual migration. Zookeepers and expert staff will be your guides, giving natural history and birding tips to participants of all ages and levels of experience.

Meet at the West Entrance at 6:45 a.m. The walk will last approximately two hours and will finish off with a special up-close experience with one of Woodland Park Zoo’s resident birds. Then, all participants are welcome to stay at the zoo to enjoy the rest of the day. Please bring binoculars and weather-appropriate clothing. Breakfast snack bars and bird-safe shade-grown coffee will be available at the conclusion of the morning walk. Reservations are required.

9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Bird information and education booth hosted by Seattle Audubon, scavenger hunt, shade-grown eco-friendly coffee sampling from Caffe Vita, and zoo docent carts.

Information and registration for our Science in the Outdoors: Birds workshop also on May 20th, 8:30 am to 3:30 pm.
