Olympic Bird Festival 2021 was canceled.
The Olympic Birdfest provides the opportunity to view a wide variety of birds on the North Olympic Peninsula. The area is widely known as a great place for bird watching as part of the Olympic Loop of the Great Washington State Birding Trail, of the the Important Bird Areas (IBA). The day of the Olympic BirdFest is timed to overlap wintering birds and the beginning of spring migration. Birders may participate in field trips, boat tours, presentations, workshops, and a banquet. Field trip locations include bays, fields, and wooded areas. A tour explaining the Jamestown S’Klallam tribal totem poles at the Tribal Center and the Seven Cedars Casino will also be offered. Many events, walks, and presentations are free to low cost ($15-$25). Many of the workshops and field trips are higher cost ($40-$80) and some boat trips are quite costly ($950). The Dungeness River Audubon Center in Sequim is “Bird Central” for the weekend, providing maps and information about the Sequim Dungeness Valley and the festival.
