Birds are flying back into North Dakota now that the cold winter is over.
The Upper Souris Refuge is about thirty thousand acres and they are anxious to see the migratory birds return home.
The Refuge manager says that thousands of birds come back here during spring migration and the goal for many of these birds is to find a place to nest.
“Certainly bird viewing is popular right now because all the birds are breeding plumage, they’re really colorful, just a beautiful spectacle,” said Tom Pabian, Upper Souris Refuge Manager.
There are about three hundred different species of birds that have been seen at Upper Souris Refuge.
