Tualatin River Bird Festival, May 12-15

Tualatin River Bird Festival, May 12-15, 2011, Sherwood, Oregon.

Coming up next month is the annual Tualatin River Bird Festival at the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge in Sherwood:

Every year hundreds of thousands of birds visit Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge on their journey along the Pacific Flyway, one of the ‘highways in the sky’ extending from the Arctic to South America. In the spring, birds no bigger than a tennis ball fly over 5,000 miles north to nest in the Willamette Valley. Many of these colorful migrants rest, nest, and raise their chicks at Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge. Patient human visitors may have the chance to observe, photograph, draw, and paint these colorful birds.

Join the Friends of Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge for a 4-day celebration of these amazing avian animals! Over 50 lectures, workshops, walks, tours, and hand-on activities are planned from beginning bird walks to special photography paddles along the Tualatin River. 2011 offers the most extensive variety of activities and we can’t wait to see you there!

Patrick and I are signed up for a twilight nature walk… check it out on Facebook, too.

    Hi, Michael,

    Thanks for the post about our Bird Festival on your blog today. “Teddy Roosevelt” (Joe Wiegand) who will be our kick-off speaker is here in Portland today and we got to meet him and hear him speak to the Lake Oswego Rotary Club–very informative and entertaining.

    Thanks again for helping to publicize our event.
