World Migratory Bird Day – May 11

Birds hold a special significance in this world.

Various migratory birds connect all corners of the world in different environments as they migrate from one place to another. During the course of their long journeys, they need places to rest, feed and breed.

Sadly, such places are becoming less and less available , and many of these birds are now threatened as their habitats are being destroyed. World Migratory Bird Day is an annual event to raise awareness about this problem.

It falls on the second weekend of May and this year it will be celebrated on May 11th and 12th. During these two days, people around the world will take action and organize public events to highlight the need for the protection of migratory birds and their habitats.

We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls.
