International Migratory Bird Day this week

May 12 is International Migratory Bird Day. Bird migration is a fascinating topic. The Sandhill cranes that travel by the thousands from the Arctic Circle, western Alaska and Canada to spend fall and winter along the Rio Grande are an incredible sight to see and hear.
