International Migratory Bird Day 

May 13-14, 2017

Started in 1993, International Migratory Bird Day (IMBD) is now hosted at over 500 sites throughout the Western Hemisphere, reaching literally hundreds of thousands of young people and adults.  Potomac Valley Audubon Society celebrates IMBD as part of the Ruth Ann Dean Memorial Birdathon, which takes place during the month of May.

In past years IMBD support has help to fund a variety of PVAS bird conservation efforts. Projects have included grassland bird habitat restoration, educational birding programing, and urban bird conservation initiatives. Your participation and donations towards IMBD and Birdathon events help PVAS continue  to conserve and enhance bird habitat in our region. 

You can register your Birdathon Team or donate to the Birdathon using these buttons.

This event is held annually across the Americas the second Saturday in May. It’s a wonderful way to celebrate the amazing feat of migratory birds’ long-distance travels. Help count the successful migrants at a local bird walk or event. Learn more at
