Fifth Annual BirdFest – Canceled!

November 10, 2018 @ 9:00 AM - 2:30 PM

The Fifth Annual Birdfest at Gillette Ranch

BirdFest started out small, and has grown over the years into a vital gathering of bird-lovers both expert and amateur, drawn from all over the Southland.

BirdFest is an opportunity for parents to acquaint their children with the wonder and beauty of birds -- and the ease with which the birdlife around us can become a fascinating part of their lives.

BirdFest is a chance to see large bird up-close, and hear experts speak about their lives and the habitats they share with us

BirdFest is a chance to go on -- perhaps your first -- bird walk with an expert who will show you how we spot and identify birds. You will see why the distinctions between different species are such an object of bird-watcher fascination.

Who knows, you might even decide to become more of a bird-watcher yourself. There are so many ways to bird-watch -- from the sidewalk in front of your house to the parks and forests around us, to...the world is the limit.

Come take a look at BirdFest. It’s free and it’s fun. See below for details and a map to the Gillette Ranch. See you there!

El quinto festival anual de aves en Gillette Ranch

BirdFest comenzó siendo pequeño, y ha crecido a lo largo de los años hasta convertirse en una reunión vital de amantes de las aves, tanto expertos como aficionados, provenientes de todo la ciudad.

BirdFest es una oportunidad para que los padres familiaricen a sus hijos con la maravilla y la belleza de las aves, y la facilidad con que las aves que nos rodean pueden convertirse en una parte fascinante de sus vidas.

BirdFest es una oportunidad para ver aves grandes de cerca y escuchar a los expertos hablar sobre sus vidas y los hábitats que comparten con nosotros.

BirdFest es una oportunidad para continuar -- quizás su primera caminata de aves -- con un experto que le mostrará cómo detectamos e identificamos las aves. Verá por qué las distinciones entre diferentes especies son un objeto de fascinación para observadores de aves.

Quién sabe, podrías decidir convertirle más en un observador de aves. Hay tantas maneras de observar aves, desde la acera frente a su casa hasta los parques y bosques que nos rodean, hasta ... el mundo es el límite.

Ven a echar un vistazo a BirdFest. Es gratis y es divertido. Vea a continuación los detalles y un mapa de Gillette Ranch. ¡Les veamos allí!
