WIND CAVE NATIONAL PARK, S.D. (AP) - Wind Cave National Park is planning a bird blitz for experienced and novice bird watchers.

The event on Saturday, May 21, is in conjunction with the National Park Service’s centennial celebration.

The bird blitz will feature bird walks for the beginners, bird surveys for more experienced birders and bird box construction for family groups. Visitors can also see birds up close and watch demonstrations with live hawks, owls and eagles to learn about conservation of raptors.

Staff will also discuss bird apps, field guides, binoculars, spotting scopes and birding ethics.

Park Superintendent Vidal Davila says the goal is to spark an interest and enthusiasm in all age groups from young children to adults.
