Tualatin River Bird Festival

  • This event has passed.

May 20, 2023 All day

The Tualatin River Bird Festival is a free event open to the public on Saturday, May 20, 2023, at the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge in Tualatin, Oregon. Located near Portland, Oregon, Tualatin River NWR is one of only a few urban national wildlife refuges in the U.S. Situated within the floodplain of the Tualatin River, the refuge supports some of the most abundant and varied wildlife in the watershed. Enjoy the bright colors and singing chorus of migratory songbirds. Many species of songbirds arrive in the spring and use the refuge as a place to breed and nest.  As seasonal wetlands dry out, mudflats are left behind; these provide a rich source of invertebrates for migrating shorebirds that are on their journey to their breeding grounds further north.
