Event Description

The annual four-day Olympic BirdFest is a treat for bird watchers on the Olympic Peninsula.

The event organizers say:

This festival provides participants the opportunity to view a wide variety of birds normally seen on the Olympic Peninsula. Field trips are planned for Sequim Bay, Port Angeles Harbor, Ediz Hook, Dungeness Spit and the Elwha River, as well as trips through wooded areas to view songbirds and locate owls in the evening. Boat trips to Protection Island are also planned. The North Olympic Peninsula is widely known as a great place for bird watching. The day of the Olympic BirdFest is timed to overlap wintering birds and the beginning of spring migration.
In addition to the field trips, birders may participate in presentations, workshops and a banquet. A tour explaining the Jamestown S’Klallam tribal totem poles at the Tribal Center and the Seven Cedars Casino will also be offered.

Registration opens early January (I believe January 1).

Note that specific events in the festival may take place in different locations — I’m adding Dungeness River Center here as its where many of the classes take place.

Single events come with their own price tag.

Here’s a map of some lodging near the primary location available at the time of BirdFest. The event website may also have some recommended lodging or discounts. I would also check for local B&Bs as the Olympic Peninsula has plenty of good ones!
