WEST ALTON, MO. (KTVI)- Even though it is snowing outside, springtime is on the way. That change of season means migratory birds are beginning their trek north.
Migratory bird season will bring many different species, such as bald eagles, ducks and peregrine falcons.
Lisa Hart traveled to west Alton this morning to speak with Jeffrey Meschach, the director at the World Bird Sanctuary.
The recent cold weather does not bother the birds much, so the cold weather will not affect migratory patterns, said Meschach.
The travel of larger birds will end within the next month, but after that smaller species of birds will begin making their way north.
