Migratory Bird Day Celebrates 20 Years
IMBD Needs Chart

In 2012, International Migratory Bird Day will celebrate 20 years of activities that increase awareness of birds and their conservation.  We're already planning for this event and will be providing monthly information about IMBD activities for use by educators and event organizers.  


Thanks to those who responded to our survey about how we may continue to improve the event for you.  In answer to our question about how we can provide more information, almost 50% said you receive sufficient information, while another 50% want more!  If you didn't take our survey, we're still interested in your input. 

Celebrate 20 Years Survey

Summer Super Sales
Harper ShirtTake advantage of some IMBD super sales as we tidy our inventory. Each month, we'll host a sale on some of our great items.  In July, we're offering below-cost prices on XL and XXL tshirts, including the Charley Harper shirt and the 2010 and 2011 images.
 Super Sales!
Walk on the Wild Side Takes Off!
Big DayTeam Bird Fanatics in Idaho hosted an annual birdathon to raise funds for bird conservation.  In 2011, they joined Walk on the Wild Side and topped their 2010 donations. According to organizer Poo Wright-Pulliam:


[Walk on the Wild Side] gave our small fundraiser credibility and people enjoyed being able to view websites of the entities we would be donating to, along with our own personal stories.  

Visit Team Bird Fanatics' Walk on the Wild Side page to learn more about the event and how the funds raised will benefit birds.

Easy Bird Craft

Owl Craft

Try this easy bird craft after teaching youth about owls.  Use a standard brown paper grocery bag and provide eyes, a beak, and wings (older children may want to create these).  Glue all the parts in their appropriate places and color.  To finish, attach a string at each corner at the top of the bag, so that younger kids may hang their "owls" around their necks. 


Remember, any bird craft is more valuable when combined with information about bird biology and ecology.  Be sure to explore how owls find their prey, where owls live, and more, so that the activity is meaningful.  Looking for more activity ideas? We have lots!

Intern Brings Bird Education to New Jersey Youth

Sara Ocasio
Sara Ocasio of Puerto Rico joined the team of NPS Park Flight Migratory Bird Progam interns in our efforts to better reach Latino communities. She visited churches, businesses, and schools, talking with Latino residents and giving education programs.  Efforts culminated on June 18th during Harbor Fest, where New Jersey Audubon offered activities for youth and adults, such as birdwatching from the deck.  We'll be sharing the results of our outreach in fall 2011.

Sara and other interns are critical to the success of this project, and we appreciate their hard work!

Birds of Tokyo are finishing off a monster year with their recently announced Closer Tour. The band will travel to twenty-two towns across the country to play their last shows for 2011 before heading into the studio for the summer.

Joining Birds Of Tokyo will be the increasingly buzzworthy punk rockers Boy In A Box (aka Tij Priddle). Boy In A Box’s singles, the catchy-as-hell, “Moon Comes Up” and “Glitter, Gold, Ruin”, have received loads of love on Triple J airwaves and a long-player is expected from the Melbourne-based band later this year. Boy In A Box will join the tour from Newcastle onwards.

Also joining the tour will be Rockhampton locals, Busby Marou, who kick off the first two shows of the tour in Rockhampton and Bundaberg. Then one of the country’s most genuinely exciting new bands, The Medics will kick off the evening for southern Queensland and Northern NSW shows.

The complete dates and venues for Birds Of Tokyo: Closer are as follows and just a reminder that no extra shows will be added to this tour so fans be sure to get your tickets early to avoid disappointment.

Hi. Ladies and Gentlemans...meet our new anti-single: The Gap...we just want an excuse to show people this song...and in a "live" way..if it feels like some sort of beautiful machinery breaking down and preparing to rebuild...I think it's meant to! Kinda the point...and kinda relevant to our camp at the moment...in the best possible way :)

Here's to Meccano!
