California Bird Festivals 2010-2011

September 16, 2010

Bird festivals are fun. You meet other birders, visit new places, see their regular birds plus whatever rarities have dropped in, hear interesting presentations and discussions, admire – possibly buy – beautiful bird paintings and carvings, eat lunch and dinner with others, support their local economy and much more, not far from home. Festivals marked TBA have not yet scheduled their dates. Make reservations in advance.

    Thanks for the suggestion about making the years clearer on my site. I would be glad to share information. Two of the sources I use for posting birding festivals at are:
    American Birding Association:
    Nature Alley:
    Typically, I post about a festival one to two months before it occurs. I usually try to wait until the schedule comes out.
