Annual Harney County Migratory Bird Festival

April 13, 2023 April 16, 2023

Spend an amazing weekend witnessing the spectacular spring  migration in the Harney Basin of Southeast Oregon. View thousands of migratory birds as they rest and feed in the open spaces of Oregon’s high desert.

The Harney County Migratory Bird Festival was first held in 1981 ​to celebrate the large annual migration of birds passing through Harney Basin on the Pacific Flyway. Harney Basin is one of the three most important areas left in the western United States for spring migratory birds stopping on their way north.

Over 300 species of birds use the refuge throughout each year, making Harney Basin a bird watcher’s paradise. Today, we continue to celebrate the migratory birds’ return each year with guided tours led by experts, workshops, and fun activities for both youth and adults.
