Migratory bird celebration

Now is the time of year for migratory birds to be flying to their summer homes. Many stay in Minnesota. Tropical Wings has migratory bird celebration activities scheduled over the next couple of days. I submitted a poem to the their poetry contest and won first place! I titled my poem ‘Waiting for Spring’. same as my last blog post. You know what was on my mind after Minnesota winter. We went to a reception/program last night at the Phipps Center for the Arts in Hudson where I read my poem. The St. Croix River national riverway has several sister parks in Costa Rica. One of the visiting Costa Rica park rangers gave a presentation on birds that migrate between Costa Rica and Minnesota. Many migratory birds spend the winters in and near Costa Rica.
