Mo Willems taught us that sometimes a pigeon needs a bath. Well, at the May 22 Meet the Fledglings family program, you can come meet some actual baby birds and the folks who clean and care for them! For the fourth year in a row, the Wild Bird Fund will bring rescued fledglings to the Museum so families can feed and touch these young birds. Families will also learn about the more than 350 bird species that live in or migrate through New York City, how the Wild Bird Fund cares for its charges, and how you can protect bird life here, too! Purchase your tickets for this event here while they last. Attendees will also get a chance to make a little berry box nest for future patients in the Wild Bird Fund’s care.
See below for some snapshots from previous years of fledglings fun!
Baby pigeons always make an appearance at this event!
Each year the Wild Bird Fund brings whatever birds they have who are healthy enough to make the trip to the Museum. One year some baby ducks came!
Yes, it really is this fun to feed a fledgling!
The Wild Bird Fund needs your help making nests like this one for injured baby birds.
See you Sunday!
