26th Annual Detroit Lakes Festival of Birds
May 18, 2023 – May 20, 2023
Nestled in the heart of Minnesota’s unique transition zone of tall-grass prairie, hardwood and conifer forests, and wetlands, this area hosts a diversity of birds. In recent years, birders have checked the following species off their lists: Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher, Gray-cheeked Thrush, Rough-legged Hawk, Chestnut-collared Longspur, LeConte’s and Nelson’s Sharp-tailed Sparrows, Golden-winged and Northern Parula Warblers, Alder Flycatcher, Greater Prairie Chicken, and Black-backed Woodpecker.
The Festival of Birds will include presentations, socials, and morning field trips, with Friday and Saturday night keynotes.
