Birds of Winter includes incredible weekends from December 9, 2023, through February 19, 2024, dedicated to celebrating the amazing birds at Riverlands in winter. Over 8,000 visitors come to the Audubon Center at Riverlands to marvel at Bald Eagles, Trumpeter Swans, and many other raptor and waterfowl species.
