LAKE ANDES (AP) -- Herons, eagles, owls and hawks will be a few of the birds that enthusiasts might be able to catch a glimpse of during the South Dakota Birding Festival in early May.

The third annual event is scheduled for May 3-5 at Lake Andes. Birding enthusiasts will have the opportunity to catch sight of hundreds of migrating bird species returning to South Dakota from other parts of the country.

The event will include stops along the Missouri River, at the Lake Andes National Wildlife Refuge and the Karl Mundt National Wildfire Refuge.
