Olympic BirdFest 2014 Starts April 4 in Sequim
Three days of birding trips and opportunities to learn about the birds of the northwest coast
Birds of the coastal Pacific Northwest — Marbled Murrelets, Rhinoceros Auklets, Harlequin Ducks, dippers, Black Oystercatchers, Long-tailed Ducks, and more — are the focus of the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society’s annual birding festival this April 4 through 6.
Events include guided field trips in the spectacular setting of the Olympics’ rain shadow, a boat cruise in the Strait of Juan de Fuca, a silent auction, and a gala banquet.
This year’s featured speaker is Noah Strycker on “Bird World: The Fascinating Parallels Between Bird and Human Behavior.”
Immediately following BirdFest, the Olympic Peninsula chapter is offering a three-day, two-night birding cruise of the San Juan Islands, April 6 through 8.
