San Diego Audubon Society presents 2013 Bird Show

January 22, 2013 by  

The 17th Annual San Diego Audubon Bird Festival will take place February 28 through March 3 at the Marina Village at Mission Bay Park.

The San Diego River estuary is adjacent, providing a birding area that covers desert, mountains, shore, and coastal spots. Bicycling and kayaking in the area through the festival will provide a birding experience to remember.

There will be three pelagic trips 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, while expert birder, entertainer, editor, and book author Bill Thompson III will be a special guest at the festival. His books include ‘Bird Watching for Dummies’ and ‘Birder’s Guide to Birds of Eastern North America’.

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

Brochure printers can help out at 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 directly or hand-distributed at the event.

A Family Free Day will take place on March 3 and will offer activities for children such as an art workshop, a puppet show, and a bird-calling workshop.
