Migration Takes Flight at Tifft Nature Preserve

Migration Takes Flight at Tifft Nature Preserve

You take flight. Only feathers, muscle, and air power your movement through the sky. The journey is long and dangerous but your survival, and the survival of your kind, depends on it.  Green, brown, and a vastness of blue give way to concrete human habitats absent of food, water, or shelter. After thousands of miles of evading predation, formidable weather and countless other hazards, you arrive. Your journey has ended this Spring only to begin again in the Fall. This is the way of your species. This is bird migration.
