Bird City, Kansas becomes first Program Member

Bird City KansasWhat better place to kick-start the Bird City U.S.A. Program than in Bird City, Kansas? 

Bird City, Kansas is a small, active, agricultural community in the heartland of the United States. We would like to thank Bird City, Kansas for becoming the first member of the Audubon Lifestyles Bird City U.S.A. Program.

The Bird City U.S.A. Program provides direction, technical assistance, public attention, and national recognition for municipalities and communities throughout the United States who recognize International Migratory Bird Day, and the importance that birds have in our communities. 

Birds are most useful to humans as destroyers of harmful insects and as consumers of weed seeds.

Bird City USA Predatory birds such as the hawk, eagle, and owl are essential because they keep down the populations of rats, mice, and other rodents that would otherwise devour valuable food crops. Birds also pollinate many species of flowering plants. 

International Migratory Bird Day is an invitation to celebrate and support migratory bird conservation. Like any day of recognition, IMBD exists to focus attention on a valuable resource — the nearly 350 species of migratory birds that travel between nesting habitats in North America and non-breeding grounds in South and Central America, Mexico, and the Caribbean.

Migratory birds are among the world's most beautiful and remarkable wildlife. Symbolic harbingers of spring and melodic songsters of the woods, birds are also an important economic resource, controlling insect pests and generating billions in recreational dollars. Unfortunately, we know from research that many species are in decline, facing a growing number of threats on migratory routes and in both summer and winter habitats. Thus in addition to being a day to foster appreciation, IMBD is a call to action.
