Minnesota is one of the best areas in the country to watch many species of birds as they make their annual migration down the Mississippi River Flyway. Approximately 325 species of birds and 40 percent of waterfowl use the Mississippi Flyway during their migration cycle.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has identified six areas in the state for the best viewing of species of birds not native to Minnesota, but use the Flyway as their road map to the south for the winter (smart birds!).
