Puget Sound Bird Fest 2012

Puget Sound Bird Fest announcement

“Puget Sound Bird Fest is a celebration of birds and nature in Edmonds, Washington, on the beautiful shore of Puget Sound.

“Our mission is to increase awareness of species of birds that spend all or part of their lives in the Puget Sound region, and especially the environs of Edmonds. Residents and visitors will have opportunities to observe birds in their native habitats, and learn about ways in which habitat for birds and other wildlife can be preserved and restored in urban and suburban areas. The 3-day event includes speakers, guided walks, land and water-based field trips, exhibits, and educational activities for children and adults.”

I’ve been attending this bird fest since I was around 5 years old. This year I was invited to give a presentation and guide a birding walk for families through Yost Park.

We had a great turnout of both kids and grownups and saw warblers, flycatchers, and woodpeckers.
