2013 Bird Show to wing its way into San Diego

January 20, 2013 by  

The 17th Annual San Diego Audubon Bird Festival will take place as February moves into March at the Marina Village at Mission Bay Park.

The estuary to the San Diego River is adjacent, providing a birding area that covers desert, mountains, shores, and coastal spots. Bicycling and kayaking in the area through the festival will no doubt provide a birding experience to remember.

There will be three pelagic journeys offered this year. Terry Hunefeld will lead the trip along with his partners Steve Howell, Guy McCaskie, Todd McGrath, and Paul Lehman. Trip sponsors include SeaWorld San Diego, Swarovski Optik, and Searcher Natural History Tours.

Cornell Director of Ornithology, Dr. John Fitzpatrick, will be a keynote speaker. Expert birder, entertainer, editor, and book author Bill Thompson III will be a special guest at the festival.

Dr. Fitzpatrick will be the leader in the Bird the Birch Aquarium at Scripps trip. He will also be co-host of a luncheon workshop. Thompson will co-lead a trip of Birding Along the Border in addition to appearing at a mixer and presenting workshops.

Brochure printers can play a part in events such as these festivals. Brochures contain event information, images, maps, sponsors, and contact information. They can be placed in display racks, retail entities, and other high-traffic areas. They can also be mailed or hand-distributed at the event.

The event will run February 28 through March 3, with a Family Free Day taking place on the final day, offering activities for children such as an art workshop, a puppet show, and a bird-calling workshop. Family events are free.
