Fall migration at the Union Bay Natural Area starts with waves of shorebirds from the tundra flowing through our state, bringing up to 29 different species of sandpipers to stop with us a little while and fuel up before they continue, some flying as far as South America on their long journey to their wintering grounds. As the season advances, the flow of birds increases, as the tropical flycatchers leave us and more birds begin to come down from Alaska. Billions of birds pass through North America before the migration ends. Find out all about how and why birds migrate, and get a peek at the species that we're most likely to see here. Cost: $15
