2017 Winter Wings Festival

February 16-19, 2017

Announcing the 2017 Keynoters


On Thursday, Paul Bannick of Seattle kicks off our keynote series with “Owl”. This award-winning photographer uses his intimate yet dramatic images to illustrate four different nesting owl species—Northern Pygmy, Burrowing, Great Gray, and Snowy—throughout the course of the year. A past viewer says: “Paul brings passion and expertise to everything he does”.

Making his second Winter Wings appearance is author and researcher Scott Weidensaul of Pennsylvania.   Scott will share the story of Project SNOWstorm — how a huge, collaborative research effort focused on snowy owls came together in a few frantic weeks to learn more about these mysterious Arctic hunters. He is one our most popular keynoters and will be center stage on Saturday February 18th.

Birding Adventures TV Show Released

The first ever television show about the Winter Wings Festival and birds of the Klamath Basin is now on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAPyOmRrJ9Y

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.

We hope that you will consider joining us in 2017. We will keep some of the 2016 festival information active until updates for 2017 are available.
