Fall Migration Day being planned for November 1

The Ferryville Tourism Council is hosting the second annual Fall Migration Day from 9-11 a.m. Saturday, November 1 at River View Park in downtown Ferryville, WI, right along highway 35. Dan Jackson, president of the Coulee Region Audubon Society, will be on hand to help identify the many ducks, geese, swans and other migrating birds on their journey to warmer areas.
The Mississippi Flyway is the gateway to seeing this awesome spectacle in the bird world. This day will also be a celebration of the one-year anniversary of Ferryville’s recognition as the smallest Bird City in Wisconsin.
This event is open to all families and individuals who are interested in birds. Wisconsin is the second-leading state in the nation for birdwatchers, and this is a hobby everyone in the family can enjoy together.
Educational materials will be available, as well as bird lists specific to the Ferryville area. Spotting scopes and binoculars will also be set up for viewing. Hot coffee and treats will also be provided.
