CAPITOL REEF NATIONAL PARK — The park will celebrate International Migratory Bird Day on Saturday.

Many species of migratory birds — including warblers, sparrows and raptors — can be seen while the birds stop over in the park area.

Park biologists will lead a bird walk from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. The walk meets at the Capitol Reef National Park picnic area parking lot. Participants should bring binoculars and water.

International Migratory Bird Day was created in the 1990s to build understanding, appreciation and protection of bird migration. For more information, visit www.birdday.org.
