The Washington Island Nature Center announced on Tuesday that this year’s Birding Fest, scheduled for May 14-17, is canceled. The event is held in conjunction with the US Fish and Wildlife Service. Last year it attracted 58 people. Nature Center Director Laura Waldron says Washington Island lies on a migratory path for over a hundred birds.
The date is set to try to coincide with peak migration and can’t be moved. For the birders and their guides, the long wait for the spring of 2021 is already underway.
