Ambassadors For The Birds

The Pacific Flyway is not for aircraft, but for birds. 

Migratory birds fly up and down the West Coast by the millions, with a number of important stops in our region. 

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Migratory Bird Treaty, connecting the United States with neighboring countries that harbor the birds. 

Celebrations of the anniversary include the naming of Pacific Flyway Ambassadors to travel the Flyway behind the birds, drawing attention to the migration.  Ambassadors Carlos Rodríguez and Christian McWilliams visit to talk about their journey, sponsored in part by the Klamath Bird Observatory.
