Need Something To Do Saturday?

Posted By on Sat, May 12, 2012 at 6:00 AM

Birds are everywhere—they star in terrifying Alfred Hitchcock horror films, inspire myriad idioms (bird brain, free as a bird) and dot skies, sidewalks, trees and bodies of water.

It's no wonder, then, that there's a day dedicated to them. Today is International Migratory Bird Day, and you can celebrate locally at the MK Nature Center.

The center will offer an array of feather-themed fun, including face-painting and picnic concessions. At 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m., you can get some exercise with a bird walk; you can watch birds get some bling with a live bird banding from 10 a.m.-noon, and enjoy bird presentations from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., on the hour. There will also be activity stations and bird games (duck duck goose, anyone?).

This bird bash will only cost you $3, and you can buy tickets at or at the MK Nature Center.
