We welcome you to the 41st anniversary of the Winter Wings Festival in Klamath Falls, Oregon!

Planning is now underway for the 2020 program which will include birding, photography, and cultural trips, workshops, and presentations. We are pleased to announce one of three keynoters that will be joining us over Presidents’ Day Weekend. Watch this space for more program information. The complete 2020 program and schedule will be released around mid-November 2019. Online registration will begin the second week of December 2019. Plan to register early for the best choices. During the transition period, some of the 2019 program details will remain online from the previous festival.

We have completed our 2019 festival bird species count  and it’s 121.

The Winter Wings Festival is produced by Klamath Basin Audubon Society volunteers with support from sponsors, grants, and participant registration fees.  Proceeds from this festival support local grants to teachers and other entities for outdoor education and community nature-related projects.

Check out the first ever television show about the Winter Wings Festival and birds of the Klamath Basin now on YouTube!

The show was created by James Currie, host of the nationally syndicated Nikon’s Birding Adventures, during his visit to the Klamath Basin in mid-February. Local birders Gerry Hill, Kevin Spencer, Dave Hewitt, and Harry Fuller (McMinnville) appear on the show.
