April, 2016

Bird and Wildlife Viewing Take a birding and wildlife trip you will never forget. Plan now to attend the Kansas Birding festival in 2016. Over 300 species of birds can be seen in the Milford Lake area. This area is rich in birding opportunities during the later part of April. Not only are there native birds who inhabit the area year round, but it is the prime season for birds that migrate. Combine this with Milford Lake, the wetlands, and the native prairie; and you have the best locations in America for bird sightings. Please view sightings and pictures from past Kansas Birding Festivals. Keep checking back for news and updates on the 2016 festival.
