Bird Migration

The Flyways

The flyways are the flight routes that birds follow on their spring and fall migrations. The habitats along these routes provide resting, feeding and breeding habitat for birds. Habitat connectivity along the way is essential for these birds to survive and thrive. International governments are collaborating on a continental scale, through programs like the North American Waterfowl Management Plan and the North American Bird Conservation Initiative, to ensure ample and robust habitat availability along the flyway routes.

See our Partners section for a list of U.S. State Partners that contribute to the EHJV’s goals.
