We had a great 2016 Bird Festival!

The Harney County Migratory Bird Festival is held the second weekend of April and offers a variety of activities for bird watching enthusiasts. Located in the high desert of Southeast Oregon the festival occurs during the height of the spring sandhill crane, waterfowl and shorebird migrations along the Pacific Flyway. The Festival offers spectacular bird watching opportunities. Over 100 species of birds can be viewed during the festival.

Our 2017 Featured Speaker will be author and photographer Noah Strycker. Noah completed a Big Year of birding in 2015 and set a new world record of 6,042 species observed around the world.

Noah will talk about his Big Year adventure on Saturday, April 8, 2017.
