Birds headed our way

May 1, 2004

Albany -- Many birds take advantage of the warm weather of May to make their annual migration across the country.

Saturday the Parks at Chehaw celebrated the great flight by educating park-goers about the feather frenzy going on right now.

"There are 230 species of birds that will be flying over South Georgia this summer. One to look for is the American bald eagle," says Erin St.Clair a bird handler.

Children at park learned that many birds are being forced to leave their natural habitat because of development. They got to help save birds making bird houses out of gourds.
