Upcoming Bird Festivals and Events

A great way to enjoy bird watching is by going to festivals—they’re organized to get you to great birding spots at a great time of year, and they’re a great way to meet people. Experts and locals help you see more birds, and you’ll meet other visitors who share your hobby. While you’re there, keep an eye out for Cornell Lab representatives, as we do attend several festivals each year.

    Has anyone birded in Pskov, Russia. I will take my binoculars there at beginning of May. I know to look for “кукушка,” Cuckoo, but what else, and where? Thanks. Cori in Olympia, WA
