Super Bird Saturday is returning to Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center in celebration of Nebraska Bird Month on May 22 from 8:30am to 12:00 noon. The family-friendly event will feature a bird-banding demonstration, “Birding by Ear” workshop, family bird fair, and more. The focus will be on female birds of the prairie as they are often overlooked and understudied.
“We are thrilled to be able to have a live, in-person event on the prairie again this spring,” mentioned senior education manager and resident “Birdnerd” Jason St. Sauver. “And, we have a little something planned for everyone to celebrate birds, get outside, and have some super Saturday fun.”
Super Bird Saturday will kick off at 8:30am with a bird-banding demonstration led by Alie Mayes in partnership with the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission. Then, Jason will lead a “Birding by Ear” workshop. Space is limited; pre-registration and payment of $10 per person is required.
The free Family Bird Fair is from 10am to 12 noon and will have activities like bird-themed games, nature arts and crafts, and bird watching. The fair will also include bird yoga at 10:30am and a live bird presentation from Raptor Conservation Alliance at 11:30am. Registration is not required. Guests are welcome to bring blankets to sit on and picnics to eat if they would like to stay on the prairie after the event.
Masks will be required for all activities during Super Bird Saturday for everyone’s safety. For more information and to register for the banding demo and workshop, visit springcreek.audubon.org/events or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
