Birding Festivals

Why do so many birders make an annual trip to a birding festival as part of their vacation plans? You have to attend one to know what you’re missing. You’ll be part of a happy group of birders who love nothing more than scouring a nature trail in search of their favorite feathered friend. These birders are a generous lot offering to share their scope for a peek at a heron in a distant pond and give advise about what they’ve learned about attracting humming birds.  You’ll hear from experts in the field and meet folks just like you, who can’t get enough of following birds at a 2024 birding festival.

This list is not complete because the dates for many of the Fall birding events have not been decided. Please send me katie@bringbinoculars.local any updates and corrections.
