Migratory Bird Center Public Outreach

The Migratory Bird Center engages people of all ages through special events, citizen science programs, a birding club, and a future exhibit at the Smithsonian's National Zoo.
Scientists at the Zoo demonstrate bird banding, one of the primary methods used to study wild birds.
The Smithsonian's National Zoo’s historic 1928 Bird House will transform into a first-of-its-kind attraction that immerses visitors in the annual journeys of western hemisphere birds.
Celebrate Wildlife Migration Day at the Zoo on Saturday, May 9. This free event features family-friendly activities, as well as opportunities to talk to scientists who study wildlife migration.
Through this Smithsonian citizen science program, participants contribute to important scientific research by re-sighting banded birds and monitoring nests.
Join the club and receive invitations to bird walks led by SMBC staff and a quarterly e-newsletter about the work done around the world by SMBC scientists.
