Bird of the Year

Each year, Wake Audubon chooses a bird on which to focus. The species is always one that is locally found in Raleigh and a bird that is under pressure from development and loss of habitat. We learn about the species through articles in our enewsletter, lectures and field trips.

Congratulations to the Brown Thrasher
