LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Officials are planning several May events to mark Nebraska International Migratory Bird Month.

Gov. Pete Ricketts is scheduled to make a declaration on May 13 at the Capitol. Family bird walks, breakfast birding outings and other educational, family-friendly events are planned statewide during the month.

Nebraska is situated in what is known as the Central Flyway, a migration route used by hundreds of species of birds each spring and fall. Since 1993, International Migratory Bird Day has been celebrated nationally on the second Saturday of May. Nebraska has extended the celebration throughout the month.
