Connect at a Festival

Fall shorebirds, winter ducks, spring migrants, summer songsters—there’s always good bird watching somewhere. So consider planning your next vacation—near or far—around a birding festival. It’s a great way to make the most of where you are, see amazing birds, and connect with others with whom you can share your adventures and your excitement.
