2018 marks the 25th anniversary of International Migratory Bird Day (IMBD), the first hemisphere-wide celebration of migratory birds, and the 100th anniversary of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. IMBD was originally created by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center to focus public attention on the need for action to conserve birds and their habitats. Now called World Migratory Bird Day, this celebration marks the return of birds from non-breeding grounds to their nesting sites in the north.

The theme for this year’s World Migratory Bird Day is the Year of the Bird, which focuses on the many simple but effective conservation actions that individuals, groups, organizations, and communities can take to help protect migratory birds each and every day. The website for the celebration provides resources for educators, community groups, and others to help celebrate the day.

SB&F is pleased to provide this Bird Bibliography of books about birds for all ages.
