All things avian will be celebrated when Antigo’s Raptor Education Group hosts a day of activities for Migratory Bird Day on Saturday.

The event will open with a guided bird hike along the Spring Brook boardwalk beginning at 8 a.m. Participants should bring their own binoculars, with a limited supply available from REGI staff.

“We will look and listen for birds that call the woods and wetlands home,” Molly McKay, director of education for REGI, said.

Watchers should meet at Little League Park.

Action will swing south to the west side of City Park starting at noon with a live raptor program featuring some of REGI’s favorite education birds. Other activities will follow 1 to 4 p.m.

“We’ll spend the afternoon learning about the birds of Antigo neighborhoods while playing games and doing crafts,” McKay said.

At 2 p.m., participants are invited to build bluebird houses from kits provided by REGI. A $5 donation is requested per kit and carpenters should bring their own hammers.

“This is a family friendly event,” McKay said, noting that children must be accompanied by an adult.
