Audubon Society of Lincoln City is celebrating World Migratory Bird Day this Saturday, May 13, at Oregon Coast Community College, 3788 SE High School Drive, Lincoln City.

This year’s theme, “Water: Sustaining Bird Life,” is particularly appropriate for Lincoln City with its seven miles of ocean beach, two major rivers with estuaries, and a large freshwater lake. These varied sources of water provide migrating birds with a welcome source of habitat and food as they travel along the Pacific Flyway — some stopping for a few weeks and others staying for months at a time.
