Our Community

Bird Island is a farming community on the Hwy 212 corridor in west-central Minnesota.  Conveniently located an hour and a half from downtown Minneapolis, this town retains the rural, not suburban flavor.  Fortunate to be a part of the BOLD school district, Bird Island has distinct relationships with both Olivia and Lake Lillian, MN.  Naturally some of  our residents travel to other communites to work, but we are fortunate to have an active Main Street with business focusing on various interests and services, including:  computer programming, the fuel industry, insurance services, quilting, financial services, legal, medical care, child care and retail outlets.
