“The discovery of a pine flycatcher, the first of this species ever found in the United States, has increased the awareness that Choke Canyon is indeed a special birding location,” Foster concluded.
The event will start with registration and a welcome coffee at 7 a.m., followed by professionally guided birding tours and educational workshop. A sandwich buffet will be served at noon. There will be more birding tours in the afternoon and another educational seminar. A barbecue dinner will be served at 5 p.m.
Cost of the festival is $35 per person which includes park admission, all meals, professional guides and educational programs.
