National Bird Week



National Bird Week in the Netherlands

There’s a Dutch saying that “In May all birds lay their eggs.” That makes this month the ideal moment for the National Bird Week with many fun activities involving our winged friends.

And there’s plenty on the schedule! From checking up on birdhouses to workshops bird photography and bird excursions to discover as many colorful and beatiful sounding birds as possible.

Where? Well actually there are activities to be found all throughout the Netherlands. From the Kleine Weerd in the south to the National Parc Lauwersmeer in the north. And did you know that on the Dutch island Texel they organize the Texelse Wadden Bird Festival? Ejoy an educational and fun day out this weekend!
