Bird Fest flies near

Every spring this poem rings out on school playgrounds.

In Sequim there's no reason to wonder. Come to BirdFest April 9-11, and people will help you find more birds than you can imagine.

Spring is a great time to find birds on the peninsula. Migration is going forward and many birds find places here to rest on their way north. Other birds are arriving and setting up their nesting territories.

BirdFest offers events ranging from a two-day cruise to the San Juan Islands to a nighttime owl prowl. In all, 22 trips with experts let participants view waterfowl, land birds and even the totem poles of the S'Klallam Tribe.
