Can you recall a special memory of a bird sighting? Sandhill Cranes flying overhead, a tiny Cerulean Warbler hopping along from branch to branch, or an understated yet fascinating Dark-eyed Junco flitting about the forest floor. Or maybe it was simply the variety of birds visiting a backyard feeder.

If we act now, these won’t just be memories from the past. Present and future generations will be able to witness the breathtaking sight of a Red-headed Woodpecker or a majestic Whooping Crane. And they’ll benefit as well from the immense and unparalleled ecosystem benefits that birds bring to our biodiverse world.
