Mississippi Priority Bird Species

More than 325 bird species make the round-trip each year along the Mississippi Flyway, from their breeding grounds in Canada and the northern United States to their wintering grounds along the Gulf of Mexico and in Central and South America. Audubon Mississippi concentrates it's conservation work and efforts around critical bird species that depend on this flyway for survival. Audubon classifies these species of concern as Priority Bird Species. Our conservation work directly addresses the needs of these species and the habitats they rely on during their migration, during  nesting season, and as they overwinter.
