Living on a flyway (St. Croix River) is one of Stillwater’s charms. A wide variety of migratory bird visitors pass through our fair city twice each year, including American white pelicans. The huge birds with 7-foot wingspans come from as far south as Panama to breed in remote inland areas of North America. A flock of them is wondrous to behold.
Sustainable Stillwater MN is hosting a celebration of migratory birds at Stillwater’s first Migratory Bird Day Festival on May 15 at Pioneer Park. This family-friendly event features a raptor “guest” from Carpenter Nature Center and tables sponsored by organizations devoted to wild birds including Master Gardeners, Wild Ones, US Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Sally Manzara Nature Interpretive Center in Lake Elmo. Bird hikes are scheduled for 7 am at Sunfish Lake and 10 am at Brown’s Creek Park Reserve (meet at the parking area on Neal Ave), led by Linda Radimecky, an interpretive naturalist. This birding festival is the prelude to Stillwater's becoming an official Audubon Bird City, which the City Council endorsed last year. Hope to see you there! Confirm details with us at firstname.lastname@example.org a day or so before the walks.
